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.
The effect of 25, 45 and 65% replacement of Portland Cement with ground pelletized slag in w/cm0.4 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.
Effect of 80% replacements with ground granulation slag.
Ground pelletized slag (as made at Hamilton, ON in 1978) is not as effective as ground pelletized slag as made in 1978 at Sparrows Point, PA.
Effectiveness of w/cm = 0.6 concrete in predicting performance of w/cm = 0.4 concrete
Concrete made with w/cm = 0.6 has been useful in predicting effectiveness of fly ash and slag in marine concrete made with w/c = 0.4
Comparison of 0, 10, and 15 and 20% replacement of Portland Cement with Silica Fume in 0.6 w/cm concrete
Limit silica fume to 10% for marine concrete in w/cm = 0.6 concrete.
