Chloride Penetration Depth in Silica Fume Concrete

Gladis Camarini, Paulo Sérgio Bardella, and Denise Cristina Barbosa
Abstract—This study was performed to evaluate chloride ion penetration depths in concrete produced with high early strength Portland cement with and without silica fume replacement (10% by mass). Two curing procedures were used to produce precast structures curing: air and steam curing at 60 ºC. Chloride ion depths were measured at 90 days by spraying a solution of 0.1N AgNO3 at specimen surfaces. The results showed that Chloride ion penetration depth in silica fume concrete was diminished.
