Abstract

Abstract This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation in which the effect of sulfates on the strength of concrete under conditions simulating cast-in-situ and precast situations, is carried out. A range of sulfate concentrations and exposure durations are adopted and the strength loss in concrete due to the sulfate attack is experimentally determined. The results indicate that the use of precasting in place of casting-in-situ is preferable, in situations exposed to sulfate environments.
