Slide7 l.jpg

As part of a long-term study on the performance of supplementary cementing materials in concrete, ICON/CANMET arranged for the casting and placing of over 250 prisms 305X305X915 mm in size at a mid-tide wharf in the Bay of Fundy. The influence of replacing Portland Cement with stag fly ash and silica fume will be discussed next.

Ultrasonic pulse velocity measurements and Resonant frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

Introduction #1 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

The effect of 25, 45 and 65% replacement of Portland Cement with ground pelletized slag in w/cm0.4 air entrained concrete after 20 years exposure on a mid-tide wharf at Treat Island in the Bay of Fundy. Site is maintained by the US Corps of Engineers. Exposure 7300 cycles of wetting and drying and over 2000 cycles of freezing and thawing.


Conclusion 1 l.jpg
Conclusion #1 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

  • At 25% replacement with slag-no effect material

  • At 45% and especially at 65% replacement significant loss of surface has occurred


Introduction 2 l.jpg
Introduction #2 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

Effect of 80% replacements with ground granulation slag.


Conclusion 2 l.jpg
Conclusion #2 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

  • 80% of replacement with ground granulated slag is comparable to 45% replacement with pelletized slag at 20 years at Treats Island.


Introduction 3 l.jpg
Introduction #3 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed. ACE SP-163, 1996, pp 1-52.

  • Effect of 25% replacement with fly ash

  • Effect of 20% replacement with fly ash and effect of 40% replacement with pelletized slag

  • Effect of 20% replacement with fly ash and effect of 60% replacement with pelletized slag


Conclusion 3 l.jpg
Conclusion #3 frequency measurements are taken on each prism yearly. Also on a yearly basis a visual rating is done. For further information on this testing and on the properties of the concrete and its constituents refer to the paper “Performance of Concrete at Treat Island, USA: CANMET Investigation” by V. Mohan Malhotra and Theodore W. Bremner, in the Proceedings of the Third CANMET/ACI International Conference held at Saint Andrews by the Sea, NB, Canada. V.M. Malhotra, Ed.

  • 25% replacement with fly ash – no effect

  • 20% replacement with fly ash along with either 40% or 60% pelletized slag results in significant surface distress at 20 years
