Soft water attack of concrete structures exposed to natural waters

Design and production of durable precast concrete

Chemical attack of concrete occurs in aqueous solutions where aggressive agents react with normally stable phases in concrete causing either surface decomposition or internal disruption of the hardened matrix. This paper gives an overview on the associated deterioration processes, protective and preventative measures, and design guidelines for precast concrete elements.
