Paper Title:
Behavior of Concrete Permeability Considering ITZ
  Abstract

In this paper, concrete was analyzed as a composite consisting of coarse aggregate, mortar matrix and interfacial transition zone (ITZ). Because permeability of each phase are not the same, ITZ will affect the concrete permeability. Effect of ITZ on the concrete permeability was studied by laboratory test and numerical analysis.The diffusion coefficient of ITZ, mortar,and concrete can be caculated by laboratory test. The results indicate that the diffusion coefficient of ITZ is far greater than mortar,which is about 40 times of mortar. The chloride ions diffusion ignoring ITZ and considering ITZ were simulated, the results show that the diffusion coefficient of concrete was bigger when the ITZ was considered, which was closer to the experimental results.
