A Study on Water Penetration of Concrete under Water Pressure to Develop the Anti-Corrosion Repair System

Abstract:

Article Preview

As concrete is a type of porous materials, water or air freely permeates concrete. Therefore the durability of concrete decreases. However, porous material with a rust inhibitor may allow permeation of water into concrete. In addition, there may be permeation of water through the rust inhibitor at the location of steel frames. The objective of the study is to investigate the penetration depth of concrete under water forced conditions with pressure.
