CORROSION IN CONCRETE AND MORTAR

AFTER CONSIDERING THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CEMENT USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF MORTAR OF CONCRETE, THE AUTHOR EXAMINES THE CHEMICAL ASPECT OF THE SETTING AND HARDENING PROCESSES, THE AGRESSIVENESS OF WATER, AIR AND SOIL ON CONCRETE AND ON METAL REINFORCEMENT. THE STUDY PROVES THAT CONCRETE IS ATTACKED BECAUSE OF ITS POROSITY, THE PRESENCE OF AGRESSIVE ELEMENTS IN THE BINDER, AND THE PHYSICAL CHANGES IN THE CONCRETE. RESISTANCE TO CORROSION CAN BE INCREASED BY WATERPROOFING, AND BY ADDITIVES THAT IMPROVE THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CONCRETE. /RRL/
