Moisture Transport in Concrete Structures in Swedish Hydro Power Plants

Rosenqvist, Martin LU (2011) XXI Nordic Concrete Research Symposia In Nordic Concrete Research - Proceedings of XXI Nordic Concrete Symposium 2011/1(43). p.159-163
Abstract
Concrete structures in hydro power plants exposed to harsh environment, such as non-frozen freshwater and long cold winters with freezing temperatures, are always in the danger-zone for suffering from concrete damages. Some existing concrete structures already suffer from different damages caused by high water content. The conditions regarding concrete quality, air entrainment, temperature and time will be investigated experimentally and theoretically in this doctoral study. The results could be of great help making better predictions of future degradation

or represent a better basis when choosing repair methods and materials for concrete structures.
