Electrical resistivity and capillarity of self-compacting concrete with incorporation of fly ash and limestone filler
Pedro Silva and Jorge de Brito

Abstract     [Full Text]
    Electrical resistivity is a property associated with both the physical and chemical characteristics of concrete. It allows the evaluation of the greater or lesser difficulty with which aggressive substances penetrate the concrete
Key Words
    additions; capillarity water absorption; compressive strength; durability; electrical resistivity; self-compacting concrete
