Concrete Exposure Classes - Atlantic Concrete Association

Concrete Exposure Classes . Determination of the minimum concrete performance properties is based upon identifying the following key requirements: Applicable Exposure Conditions – The designer must assess the environmental conditions that the concrete will be exposed to during its service life. Direct input is also required from the owner regarding possible future uses since they can ...

Durability And Exposure Classes

The exposure classes defines the required concrete cover, which is normally the minimum cover plus a margin for any deviation when on site. Concrete develops microscopic cracks when loaded, which can widen depending on the applied loads. Designers set a minimum crack width which is generally 0.3mm.

Why the BS 8500 durability tables are the way they are

For XC exposure classes, the BS 8500-1 durability requirements are based on strength class, where the higher the strength the higher the resistance to carbonation. This comes from the established BRE view that for CEM I concretes, or concretes containing combinations of CEM I with either up to around 30% fly ash or up to around 50% GGBS, then the rate of carbonation just depends on strength class.

External paving - BS 8500 requirements - Concrete

When considering exposure classes for designed concrete it is necessary to review all exposure and in-service effects; in the case of reinforced external pavements, both freeze-thaw resistance (XF) and corrosion induced by chlorides (XD). The limiting constituent materials for the appropriate exposure class XD3 are dependent on depth of cover to reinforcement and cement type. PAV2 combines ...

Exposure classes. The environmental (exposure) classes according to NEN-EN 206-1/NEN 8005 are divided into 6 groups. The XO, XC, XD and XS groups are based on the reinforcement degradation due to corrosion, the XF and XA groups - on the concrete degradation itself. The main groups are subdivided further on the basis of the moisture which the ...
