NRMCA, Purdue University study concrete permeability test procedures

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s Research Laboratory has partnered in a Pooled Fund Study (PFS) sponsored by the Indiana Department of Transportation. The PFS is titled “Performance Guidelines for Durability.”

The goals of the study are:

    • Evaluation of existing permeability (transport) test procedures
        Development of new or improvement of existing test procedures to evaluate permeability (transport) properties of concrete
          Correlation between permeability (transport) properties and measured material response to existing durability tests
