Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the behaviour of the calcium silicate brick masonry wall exposed to sulphate condition. This paper presents some result about the effect of sodium sulphate attack on the elasticity of the calcium silicate brick masonry structures. All specimens were cured under polythene sheet for 14 days in environmental controlled room with temperature of 25± 2°C and 80 ± 5% relative humidity. After curing, the specimens were exposed to sodium sulphate solution before tested at 14, 28, 56 and 180 days respectively. As a result, the modulus of elasticity of the calcium silicate brick masonry wall reduces with the increase of sulphate concentration.

Abstract: This paper presents the behaviour of moisture movement of calcium silicate brick masonry walls exposed to sodium sulphate environment. The walls were exposed to three sodium sulphate conditions with sulphate concentrations of5%, 10% and 15%. For comparison, some walls were also exposed to dry and wet condition which acts as a control conditions. All specimens were prepared and cured under polythene sheet for 14 days in a controlled environmental room and maintained at relative humidity and temperature of 80 ± 5% and 25 ± 2°C, respectively. After the curing period, the specimens were exposed to sodium sulphate as well as drying and water exposures, during which moisture movement was measured and monitored for a period of up to 7 months. As a result, the moisture expansion was observed and recorded for all masonry wall specimens after exposed to the sulphate condition.

Abstract: The weak interfacial transition zone between new and old concrete is always paid much attention and controls many properties of repaired concrete, The present work reports a study on the influence of the silica fume on the adhesion of reactive powder concrete (RPC), as a concrete restoration material, with the ordinary concrete (OC) substrate. The results showed that, the silica fume presence in the interfacial transition zone significantly enhances the adhesion strength between RPC and OC substrate. Furthermore, the silica fume particles consume calcium hydroxide, which is in attendance in the interfacial transition zone, and make the zone more dense, uniform and tough.
