The 5 Main Types of Concrete Failure - Bluey Technologies

Below we've listed the 5 most common concrete failures that we frequently repair and their causes. 1. MECHANICAL. Most mechanical failures occur because of physical impacts such as collisions. Vibrations, overloading and other movements can also result in cracking and loss of entire concrete sections. 2. CHEMICAL.

Deteriorated and Flaking Concrete Finish: Why And Is It

Concrete can last many, many years but over time it will incur some deterioration. Driveways may experience a thin layer of cement paste deteriorating or a thin layer of the top part or the concrete scaling off. Usually this is 1/16 of an inch up to ¼ of an inch.

Corrosion environment and concrete deterioration mechanism

Sulfate produces expansive corrosion in concrete, which causes concrete to suffer expansive damages and, coupled with the lasting geo-stress on the shaft wall, speeds up the deterioration of rebar and concrete in the wall, posing a serious threat to

Microbiologically induced deterioration of concrete--a review

Microbiologically induced deterioration (MID) causes corrosion of concrete by producing acids (including organic and inorganic acids) that degrade concrete components and thus compromise the integrity of sewer pipelines and other structures, creating significant problems worldwide.

Paint is applied to the surface to serve two purposes, one to decorate and the other to provide protection. Each type of paint has its own life and deterioration earlier to the rated life is considered as paint failure. On the other hand, it looks very simple. Yet even ordinary painting has its own peculiarities. 19 types of Paint Failure and their causes Read More »

The deterioration of concrete by acids is primarily the result of a reaction between the acid and the products of the hydration of cement. Calcium silicate hydrate may be attacked if highly concentrated acid exists in the envir- onment of the concrete structures.

Corrosion of Embedded Materials

Corrosion of Embedded Metals. Corrosion of reinforcing steel and other embedded metals is the leading cause of deterioration inconcrete. When steel corrodes, the resulting rust occupies a greater volume than the steel. This expansion creates tensile stresses in the concrete, which can eventually cause cracking, delamination, and spalling.

Causes of Cooling Tower Deterioration | Sika Concrete Repair

Root Cause Examples. Atmospheric carbon dioxide ingress (loss of alkaline protection). Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere penetrates progressively into the concrete and reacts with the calcium hydroxide in the pore liquid. This eventually reduces the protective alkalinity around the steel, allowing corrosion to start in presence of water.

Deterioration of modern concrete structures and asphalt

1. Introduction. The resolution of causes for damage in cement concrete structures is an important issue for the useful life of structures. To investigate the damage in concrete, a phenolphthalein solution is commonly applied to a cross section of the concrete and the extent of deterioration of the concrete is evaluated by the color corresponding to the reaction products, i.e. the value of pH

Shrinkage in Concrete, Definition, Types, and Factors

Concrete is subjected to changes in volume either autogenous or induced. Volume change is one of the most detrimental properties of concrete, which affects the long-term strength and durability. To the practical engineer, the aspect of volume change in concrete is important from the point of view that it causes unsightly cracks in concrete. We have discussed elsewhere the
