Abstract:

Many phenomena that contribute to the deterioration of concrete in dams do so by mechanisms that induce internal expansion. That which expands may be a constituent of the cement, a constituent of the aggregate, or the contents of a pore or void in the concrete. These phenomena include frost action, alkali-aggregate reaction, sulfate attack, and a variety of chemical reactions not involving alkalies or sulfates. Author
