Talk:Concrete degradation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A more appropriate name for this page would be Concrete degradation. Failure is the ultimate state occurring after degradation.

I would suggest to rename this page in Concrete degradation.

What do you think ? Shinkolobwe (talk) 15:29, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

I am quite against this suggestion to merge concrete cancer and concrete degradation: although the term may be colloquial, it is largely used, and more specific than the general degradation that can occur from bacterial corrosion, physical damage, thermal damage, etc... This article concentrates on carbonatation due to water penetration and Alkali–silica reaction. I think the subject deserves its own article. — Ludopedia(Talk) 05:32, 10 September 2015 (UTC) (a search of the term "concrete cancer" returns 53 200 000 results ! search google)
I think I oppose this as well. concrete cancer is a specific term and there'd be a stack of info on it. It deserves its own article. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 02:59, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Service life[edit]

Can someone provide a link to some serious references for the service life of the concrete in different uses (I guess this service life depends on the exposition of the concrete)?

Aggregate expansion[edit]

At a recent conference, NYSDOT engineers stated that the use of iron mine tailings as aggregate was a contributing factor to the demise of the Lake Champlain Bridge, when the iron oxidized and expanded. Unfortunately, I can't find a source that explicitely states this, or I'd add it to the article. If anyone else can find a source I missed, please feel free to add.--Triskele Jim (talk) 17:40, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
