Comparison of Resistance to Abrasion of Fast Track Concrete at Various Ages

Tests were conducted in order to determine the resistance to wear of three fast track concretes at four age categories; namely, opening to traffic; and 3, 7, and 28 days. Both ASTM Types I and III Portland cement were utilized. The trail matrices were examined four plastic and bulk properties, and resistance to wear. The influence of matrix constituents and proportions, curing age, and testing duration (up to 20 minutes or 3 mm, whichever was reached first) were determined. Other properties namely; rate of abrasion; relative gain of abrasion; coefficient of variation; and abrasion index were examined in the paper.
