Abstract
Acid testing of concrete specimens is not simple. Questions to be considered are : the type of acid to be used; the representativeness of the concrete mixtures tested; the nature of the measurements to characterise degradation; and how the results are to be applied to practical design and prediction of service life. This chapter covers two test methods for determining acid attack on concrete specimens. They are both "dynamic" in that the specimens are roated in a solution and corrosion products are removed. However, they differ in the acides used and in the measurment of the key parameters. They wer also developed for different reasons : that at the University of Cape Town was developed to characterise concrete mixturers for sewer pipes, while that at the Magnel Laboratory for Concrete Research at the University of Ghent was developed primarily for testing concretes for use in agro-industries, but also for sewer pipe concrete on occasions....
