Five year drying of high performance concretes Effect of

Sep 01, 2017 For cylindrical concrete and cement paste samples, oven-drying is performed at 60 C and RH=7% 1. This brings intermediate mass and length change values when compared to T =50 or 80 C. Also, at such temperature, ettringite decomposition is assumed not to contribute to the observed changes, as its degradation starts at 70 C [20] , [21] .

Exploring the effects of moisture and drying on cement

Exploring the effects of moisture and drying on cement

May 06, 2019 A highly porous material, cement tends to absorb water from precipitation and even ambient humidity. Researchers discuss just how the material’s porous network absorbs water and propose how drying permanently rearranges the material and leads to potential structural damage.

Strength Behaviour of a High Performance Concrete Under Drying

Strength Behaviour of a High Performance Concrete Under Drying

May 19, 2021 Cement-based materials usually undergo drying which influences their mechanical behaviour. This study investigates the evolution of mechanical properties of a high-performance self-compacting concrete subjected to drying at an early age and after long-term maturation. Uniaxial compression and bending tests are performed at different drying times.

3 Ways Moisture Affects Concrete Strength Polygon Group

How Moisture Affects Concrete Strength. Increased space between cement grains: Higher water-to-cement ratios result in greater spacing between the aggregates in cement, which affects compaction. Similarly, increased moisture levels reduce the concrete’s compressive strength and durability. As concrete’s surface area increases, particularly ...
