Evaluation of Relationship between Water Absorption and ...

Environment has significant effects on the water absorption of concrete materials. This paper presents an experimental study of the influence of water absorption on the durability of concrete materials. A detailed analysis is also presented in order to establish useful relationship between them. Concrete specimens of different water absorption were prepared through different curing conditions, and results indicated that curing condition can significantly affect the surface water absorption. SEM

Importance of Water-Cement Ratio in Concrete

Good concrete results from a good mix design and a low w/c ratio is one but very empirical part of a good mix design. Higher the water-cement ratio means the higher quantity of water which results in dilution in cement paste. It makes poor concrete mix and increases water permeability. Thus, leads to leakage and dampness.

Water-to-Cement Ratio and Aggregate Moisture Corrections

May 28, 2010 · Water alone should never be used to improve the workability of fresh concrete. Using water to assist in finishing operations or working bleed water back into the top surface of the concrete should also be avoided as these practices will increase the water-to-cement ratio of the top layer of concrete, which will lead to future durability problems.

Evaluation of Relationship between Water Absorption and Durability of ...

How is water absorption measured?

Strength, Water Absorption and Porosity of Concrete ...

Jan 01, 1996 · The water absorption for the two series of concrete is shown in Table 5 and Fig. 2. It can be seen in the table that the water absorption, for both series, increases as the W/C ratio increases. The maximum absorption was observed at W/C ratio of 0.55. As the W/C ratio becomes larger than 0.55, water absorption decreases.

Evaluation of water absorption of concrete as a measure for ...

Based on an extended experimental research programme, with test on 22 different concrete mixes (traditional concrete and self-compacting concrete), the relation between water absorption by immersion and some concrete durability issues is investigated. Within these tests, accelerated carbonation and chloride migration tests are realised.

Water in Concrete | For Construction Pros

Apr 23, 2014 · In general, less water produces better concrete. However, concrete needs enough water to lubricate and provide a workable mixture that can be mixed, placed, consolidated and finished without problems.

Development of Concrete Water Absorption Testing for Quality ...
