BEHAVIOR OF CONCRETE IN SATURATED AND WEAK SOLUTIONS OF MAGNESIUM SULPHATE OR CALCIUM

MECHANISMS OF SULPHATE AND CHLORIDE ATTACK ARE DISCUSSED WITH REFERENCE TO THE INFLUENCE OF THE CONCENTRATION OF THE AGGRESSIVE SOLUTION ON THE PROGRESS AND EXTENT OF ATTACK. CHANGES IN LENGTH, WEIGHT, AND NATURAL FREQUENCY OF CONCRETE SPECIMENS MADE WITH TYPES I AND V CEMENTS, WITH DIFFERENT WATER-CEMENT RATIOS, AND EXPOSED TO WEAK AND SATURATED SOLUTIONS OF MAGNESIUM SULPHATE AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE FOR 1,000 DAYS ARE DESCRIBED. THE SATURATED SOLUTIONS ARE SHOWN TO BE HIGHLY CORROSIVE, BUT THE EXTENT AND TYPE OF DAMAGE VARY WITH THE FACTORS INVOLVED. /AUTHOR/
