Abstract

An experimental study was conducted to evaluate correlations between the depth of water penetration, chloride permeability, and coefficient of chloride diffusion in plain, silica fume, and fly ash cement concretes. A total of 27 concrete mixtures were prepared by varying the water to cementitious materials ratio and cementitious materials content and using Type I, fly ash (20 %), and silica fume (7.5 %) cements. The test results were statistically analyzed to develop correlations between the depth of water penetration, chloride permeability, and coefficient of chloride diffusion. A good correlation was noted between the depth of water penetration and chloride diffusion, and Chloride permeability and coefficient of chloride diffusion (R2>0.80).
