In this paper, an attempt is made to generalize Abrams' law to any given age. It is intended to enhance the applicability of this law for practical applications by covering 3 to 365 days range. The result makes the prediction of concrete strength more convenient. Two novel methodologies,...
This study attempts to generate information about the strength and deformation behavior of plain concrete under biaxial compression after 0, 25, 50 and 75 cycles of freezing and thawing. Concrete cubes were tested under biaxial compressive stresses. Five principal compression stress ratios and...
This paper provides a critical evaluation of the various methods available for testing the efficacy of measures for preventing expansion due to alkali–silica reaction (ASR) in concrete containing deleteriously reactive aggregate. The ideal test method should be rapid, reliable and capable of...
Sorption isotherms and scanning-isotherms of hardened Portland cement paste were measured. A structure model was developed to give a theoretical interpretation for the measured sorption isotherms. In particular, the causes for hysteresis between adsorption and desorption were described. Not only...
The aim of this work is the development of a practicable method for the reliable prediction of the equilibrium hygroscopic water content in hardened cement paste and cement mortars at changing climatic conditions. Sorption thermodynamics and multi-scale pore structure of hardened cement paste...
Piezoresistivity in carbon fiber cement allows strain sensing. It was first reported in 1993, but this paper provides the first theoretical model for this phenomenon. The model is based on the concept that the piezoresistivity is due to the slight pull-out of crack-bridging fibers during crack...
Electroosmotic experiments have been carried out on eight different mixes of hardened cementitious matrixes including concrete, mortar and pastes, different types of binders, carbonated and non-carbonated specimens and different test conditions. From these trials, the zeta potential values have...
The rheological properties of cementitious pastes used to proportion Self-Consolidating Concretes (SCC) have been examined, in particular, the influence of High range water reducing admixture (HRWRA) with that of Viscosity Modifying Admixtures (VMAs) have been compared. HRWRAs are known to have...
The paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the effects of drying conditions, specimen size and presence of plasticizing admixture on the development of shrinkage strains. The measurements are taken in a harsh (50 °C and 5% R.H.) and a moderate environment (28 °C and 50%...
Air entraining agent is used to control the floatation of lightweight aggregate (LWA) in lightweight aggregate concrete (LWAC), therefore reducing the segregation of LWAC. At the same time, using an air entraining agent will affect the water sorption of the concrete. In this paper, two...
