Paper Title:
Chloride Penetration through Cracks in Concrete with Various Mixing Properties
  Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify and quantify the effect of the mixing features of concrete such as size of coarse aggregate, high strength and steel fiber reinforcement on chloride penetration through micro-cracks. In examining the effect of size of coarse aggregate on chloride penetration through cracks, the cracks should not impact on chloride penetration directly, although small size of coarse aggregate can lead to complicated micro-cracks in concrete. On the contrary, chloride should easily penetrate through micro-cracks concentrated at the surface of coarse aggregates. In examining the effect of high strength concrete on chloride penetration through cracks, high strength concrete has an excellent performance to resist with chloride penetration. If cracks are generated in high strength concrete, however, its performance is reduced up to the level of ordinary concrete.
