A Study of the Durability of Concrete in Sea Water


Bangham, William Larribee (1923) A Study of the Durability of Concrete in Sea Water. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/D9TH-4P57.


The durability of concrete in sea water has been a very widely debated question from the time that disintegration of concrete in sea water first became evident. Numerous investigations and reports have been made of isolated structures in various parts of the country and from these, hasty conclusions have been reached which engineers, situated where different conditions prevail, have not been warranted in accepting. A few engineers have made investigations of a much wider scope and consequently their conclusions should be given greater weight.
