Water demand predictions as key parameter for the mix design of durable concrete

Peter Minne, Robby Caspeele UGent and Geert De Schutter UGent (2012) fib Symposium Concrete Structures for Sustainable Community, Proceedings. p.103-106
abstract
The paste content and paste quality have an important effect on the durability of the concrete. The basic parameters which control the transport properties in the paste and concrete are water demand, water-cement ratio, strength and degree of hydration. The models of Hedegaard (water permeability), Fagerlund (capillary water sorptivity) and Ployaert (water absorption) are used in this contribution to investigate the influence of mix design changes on concrete durability. Further a case study is provided based on data from Belgian ready mixed concrete plants. The water permeability, capillary water sorptivity and water absorption are calculated by varying the cement content, the amount of fine aggregates and the consistency of the mix. The effect on the durability of the mixes is evaluated.
