Meso-scale analysis of mortar deteriorated by acid

Y. Oiwa, Y. Sato & T. Miura

One of major deterioration mechanism related to environmental action is chemical corrosion. So far many studies on chemical deterioration of concrete have been conducted. As a result, for instance, in JSCE standard specification, prediction methods for corrosion depth are provided. However, there is no prediction method for mechanical characteristic of concrete deteriorated by chemical attack because the relationships between mechanical characteristics and degree of chemical damage are not revealed yet.
