The Fourth foreign convention on Concrete fix, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2015) used to be held 5-7 October 2015 in Leipzig, Germany. This convention is a collaborative enterprise by means of researchers from the South African study Programme in Concrete fabrics (based on the Universities of Cape city and The Witwatersrand) and the cloth technological know-how team at Leipzig college and The Leipzig Institute for Materials Research and checking out (MFPA) in Germany.

ICCRRR 2015 maintains to hunt and to increase a legitimate base of idea and perform in fix and rehabilitation, via either theoretical andexperimental reviews, and during strong case research literature. key features must be addressed: that of constructing sound and simply utilized usual practices for fix, very likely codified, and the necessity to research heavily the provider functionality of repaired buildings and service platforms. actually, with no making tremendous efforts to enforce the latter target, a lot of the hassle in fix and rehabilitation may well turn out to be under not pricey or satisfactory.

The convention court cases include papers awarded on the convention which might be grouped less than the six major topics of (i) Concrete longevity facets, (ii) situation review of concrete constructions, (iii) glossy fabrics expertise, (iv) Concrete fix, rehabilitation and retrofitting, (v) functionality and well-being tracking and (vi)
Education, examine and requirements. the massive variety of prime quality papers awarded and the wide variety of proper subject matters coated be sure that those lawsuits should be a valued reference for lots of operating during this vital box and they will shape an appropriate base for dialogue and supply feedback for destiny improvement and learn. Set of e-book of abstracts (244 pp) and a searchable complete paper CD-ROM (1054 pp).

Capillary pre-saturation Getting a capillary saturated test surface, the samples were exposed to demineralized water for three days (see Fig. 8). 2. cyclic freezing and thawing exposure The capillary saturated samples were exposed to the frost attack (see Fig. 8) with a minimum temperature of −10 °C and 30 Freeze-Thaw Cycles (FTC). The test set-up for the capillary suction and the frost exposure is given in Figure 8. The test specimens were placed in distilled water. For the simulation of the freeze-thaw cycles the containers equipped with test specimens were put into a liquid cooling bath of an insulated CIF-freezer.

These molds were then wrapped by polyethylene film for 24 hours before the paste specimens were demoulded and immersed in saturated calcium hydroxide solution to prevent leaching of Portlandite. After curing for three months in saturated calcium hydroxide solution, the paste specimens were cut into the disks with the size 40 mm by 40 mm by 5 mm as shown in Figure 1. These disks were soaked in acetone for one day and then dried in desiccator for two days. Afterwards, they were preserved in a vacuum chamber before conducting the test in order to suppress the effect of carbonation.
