oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Notes on the vulnerability of Portland cement products to pure or soft water

Volume 7, Issue 9
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Portland cement concretes and other Portland cement products are known to be vulnerable to pure or soft waters. This problem is of practical importance in pipe lines or thin concrete sections where large volumes of such waters flow over concrete and other Portland cement products for long periods. The severity of attack is largely dependent on the quality of the concrete : poor concrete, even in thick sections, can be seriously attacked under very severe conditions.
