Analysis on the Correlations between Preservatives and the Durability of High Performance Structural Concretes
Concrete is the most consumed building material worldwide today, which durability has been paid close attentions for a long time. Currently，the design lifetime of many buildings is over 100 years. At present, many projects adopt preservatives to extend the durability of concrete. the paper makes contrastive studies on mechanical properties, ASTM flux, RCM chloridion diffusion, Permit in situ chloridion permeability, Autoclam water absorption, and freezing & thawing resistance between preservatives-added and non-preservative concretes at different typical strengths; and concludes correlations between the preservatives at different strengths and the durability of concrete, thus to evaluate the influence of various preservatives on the durability of high-performance concrete.
