Evaluation of Test Methods for Permeability (Transport) and Development of Performance Guidelines for Durability

The primary purpose of this project is to develop a test procedure that directly evaluates the permeability (transport properties) of concrete and relates these to anticipated performance with the use of exposure conditions. This consists of the following distinct objectives: (1) Evaluation of existing permeability (transport) test procedures. (2) Development of new, or improvement of existing test, procedures to evaluate permeability (transport) properties of concrete. (3) Correlation between permeability (transport) properties and measured material response to existing durability tests. (4) Develop guidelines to relate permeability, exposure conditions, and field performance for use in specifications and quality control processes.
