Impact of Selected Architectural Concrete Modifications on Mechanical Parameters and Durability

Martin Tazky, Lucia Osuska, Petr Novosad, and Rudolf Hela
Abstract—Concrete is a composite material for which a wide range of special modification possibilities are possible in both a fresh and hardened state, which provides a number of options for using concrete in architecture, as well as interior and exterior design. This article deals with the possibility of colouring a concrete mixture and the subsequent modification of hardened concrete, such as washed and polished concrete surfaces. The objective of the article is to verify the impact of these modifications on the production of concrete itself, and subsequently, on the physical-mechanical parameters and durability that determine the area for which this architectural concrete can be used (urban furniture, garden furniture, fence elements, interior design, etc.).

Index Terms—Architectural concrete, design, durability, polished surface, washed surface, pigment.
