CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS RESEARCH PROJECTS AT COVENTRY UNIVERSITY
SURFACE TESTS FOR CONCRETE Back to home page
Full Title: Measurement of Surface Transport Properties of Concrete to predict Durability.
Status: A research student completed his PhD on this project.
A range of tests for potential durability, that may be used on concrete structures immediately after they have been built, such as surface permeability tests, were analyzed. An array of transducers was built to monitor pressures in the concrete during the tests, and thus develop understanding of the different mechanisms which affect the results. The objective of the project was to improve the tests.
