SANTAMARIA DIAZ, Naliett Karina; YAMIN LACOUTURE, Luis Eduardo and ARCILA LOPEZ, Carlos Alberto. Resistance to chloride in the additioned concrete with blast furnace slag. rev.ing. [online]. 2006, n.23, pp. 48-57. ISSN 0121-4993.
For determining the chloride resistance of different concrete samples, the rapid chloride permeability test was used. This procedure has been established in the standard test method ASTM 1202  For this purpose, national equipment was used. It follows the specifications of the method. The tested concretes had 6 different water/binder ratios (w/b) and three percentages of blast-furnace slag as a replacement of part of cement. Although the age of the concrete was the same in all the cases, the time of saturation in water was different.
