Mechanical properties and durability performance of reinforced concrete containing fly ash
This study presents the effect of Greek fly ash as a partial replacement of cement, on the durability and mechanical resistance of reinforced concrete immersed in sodium chloride (NaCl) solution. The aforementioned additive ...
On the role of organic adlayers in the anomalous water sorptivity of Lépine limestone
Sorptivity data are reported for the capillary absorption of water, ethanol, propan-2-ol, and n-heptane by the calcitic limestone Lépine (Lavoux à grain). The data confirm that the water sorptivity is anomalously low, an ...
Durability performance of self-compacting concrete
Although self compacting concrete (SCC) is currently used in many countries, there is a fundamental lack of the intrinsic durability of the material itself. This article presents the outcomes from a research program on ...
