Paper Title:
Durability Improvement of Concrete in the Environment of Compound Salt and Freeze-Thaw Cycles by Incorporating Mineral Additives
  Abstract

Durability improvement of concrete in the complex environments of chloride, sulfate and freeze-thaw, by incorporating compound mineral additives of fly ash, slag, diatomite and zeolite in concrete, was studied through the approach of orthogonal array testing and related analysis. The results show that zeolite and diatomite play a dominant role in improving the durability of concrete in the complex environments, but the role of fly ash and slag should not be ignored. A reasonable combination of the mineral additives can effectively improve the durability of concrete in the complex conditions without lowering or even increasing the early and later strength of concrete.
