Concrete Durability - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

15.5.5.2 Concrete Durability. Concrete durability depends upon the degree of exposure, the concrete grade (or strength) and the cement content. A high density, alkali-resistant concrete will better resist the effects of moisture penetration. Since concrete is a porous material reinforcement bars within the concrete will be subject to possible ...
