- We conducted an immersion test for fresh and precast concrete in Na2SO4 solution of 5 g/L over 3 years. The water-to-binder ratio is 0.50 and the proportions of fly ash are 0-35%. The descent rate of compressive strength curve is regarded as the criterion, and the conclusions are as follows: (1) For corroded concrete, the compressive strength has a dividing point between strengthening phase and damage phase. The dividing point of precast concrete is 540-720d, and is not related to content of fly ash. The dividing point of fresh concrete is 180-720d, and is further delayed with an increase in content of fly ash. (2) The optimum value of fly ash for both fresh and precast concrete is 25%. (3) For non-corroded concrete, fly ash decreases the compressive strength before 180 days, and increases in a given time interval of 270-720d, but over long durations, the compressive strength is approximately the same regardless of fly ash content. (4) The sulfate corrosion resistance of precast concrete is higher than that of fresh concrete.
