2. Strength Development Characteristic Compressive Strength: Test cube or cylinder samples in compression Strength below which not more than 5% of test results fall. Generally referred to as 28 day strength Flexural & Indirect Tensile Strength: Generally taken to be around 10% of its uni-axial compressive strength

3. Durability Durability of concrete is its resistance to weathering, chemical attack, abrasion, frost and fire. Permeability should be as low as possible and is improved by; Full compaction Proper curing Low water content High cement content

17
**Section A.3 Hardened Concrete Properties**

3. Durability Carbonation Reinforcement is protected by highly alkaline pore water in the hardened concrete Carbon dioxide in the air neutralises the free lime. If the reaction reaches the reinforcement corrosion will occur. Very slow process dependent on permeability

18
**Section A.3 Hardened Concrete Properties**

3. Durability Chloride Attack Slow process dependent on permeability Attacks steel quickly if chloride ions can permeate concrete cover Sources are sea water and de-icing salts predominantly Keep surface permeability as high as possible through compaction, curing and using alternative cement materials

19
**Section A.3 Hardened Concrete Properties**

3. Durability Frost Resistance Depends on permeability Improved by the use of air-entraining agent Chemical Attack OPC is subject to attack by acids including organic acids and acid fumes Also attacked by sulphates in the ground and ground water Resisted by; Appropriate cement Correct concrete mix design Dense & well compacted
