The Effect of Sulphate on Length Change of Concrete

Parallel abstracts


Sulphates usually affect calcium aluminates in cements. Sulphate ions might have negative effects on cement hydration and it would be a reason of decrease in cement strength. In this study, the effects of Na2SO4 solution on the concretes made from OPC with oil shale ash (OSA) addition (0, 15 and 30%) were investigated. Concretes with 15% OSA gave the lowest value of Length Change Factor (LCF). Addition of an optimum amount of super-plasticizer increases positive properties of the concrete with 15% OSA addition, binds free Ca(OH)2 in OPC, makes its composition more effective, prevents massive alkali-aggregates reactions showing that this addition rate is proper.
