AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to developing a mathematical relationship between the Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) and the compressive strength for concrete specimens subjected to different amounts of exposure of sulfate attack.
The experimental data were collected from a research work by the author using concrete subjected to sulfate exposure and form a literature used an extensive concrete work without sulfate exposure. The sulfate exposures studied were 0%, 3%, and 6% of fine aggregate. It is found that with the same amount of sulfate exposure a clear relationship curve can be drawn to describe the UPV and compressive strength.
This paper proposes the UPV-strength mathematical expression suitable for prediction of the concrete strengths when subjected to sulfate attack.
