Aging of concrete

Aging of concrete. Q. What is the effect of aging on concrete? A. Aging, if one means merely the effect caused by the passage of time, has no effect on concrete.Of course concrete sets, hardens, gains strength, and exhibits reduced permeability with the passage of time, but it is not the passage of time alone that causes these things to happen.

Abstract: The assessment of ageing concrete structures is a major technical challenge faced by the Civil Engineers of today. Concrete bridges are exposed to corrosion from the spreading of de-icing salts on roads during winter. Corrosion is problematic because it reduces the reinforcement's load carrying capacity and a long-term consequence can be structural failure.
