Abstract

In this paper, the durability of fabric formwork-based concrete made from supersulfated cement was studied. The study involved comparison of chloride and carbonation resistance, pH values, and water absorption between of surfaces of SSC, the one being cast and the other cast in fabric formwork. It was shown that the use of fabric formwork minimized the pore volume near the surface, maintained the pH values at higher profile depths and showed improved durability when compared to the mould-cast surface. Carbonation depths were reduced by approximately 35% and calculated ab sorption rates were found to be approximately 40% lower at the fabric cast surface, indicating that fabric formwork is a promising aspect towards promoting the comeback of SSC in construction.
