Description

This article describes the effect of durable concrete in two different environments, which is produced by traditional mountain aggregates. For this purpose, we have produced concrete of class C30/37 with aggregates from mountain quarry. Meanwhile, we have not changed other components of concrete. Water – cement report is 0.4-0.61. During experimental faze, are done comparisons of resistance to compression, water and chlorides penetration for specimens of concrete which are curing in normal environment (N) and in marine environment (A). Concrete cubes produced, were treated in marine and normal environment for 3, 7 and 28 days in Durres coastal city, Albania. Finally, results are compared to each other and conclusions are made on this basis.

The design of durable concretes, produced by traditional mountain aggregate, in different environments
