    Title: Industrial Slab-on-Ground Surface Defects Author(s): by Arthur W. McKinney and Joseph F. Neuber Jr. Publication: Concrete International Volume: 35 Issue: 7 Appears on pages(s): Keywords: shading, concrete, paste, cracking, finishing Date: 7/1/ Abstract: Aggregate shading is a mottling of trowel-finished concrete associated with coarse aggregate particles near the slab surface. It appears as a white powder on the surface of concrete slabs and concrete and concrete block foundation walls. Efflorescence indicates a water problem under or behind the concrete. It is not a concrete defect. Repair of efflorescence involves finding and correcting the water source. Most concrete defects are cosmetic and are not a structural.

    Surface Defects-Bugholes • Small regular or irregular cavities, usually not exceeding 15 mm in diameter, resulting from entrapment of air bubbles in the surface of formed concrete during 72 72 surface of formed concrete during placement and compaction.   Many defects in concrete slabs are more than skin-deep; they’ve literally bubbled up from underneath. The concrete expels excess water (bleed water) and air while it cures. If the surface densifies too soon, or if it dries before the bleed water and air can be expelled, a defect will likely make its way from inside the slab to the surface.

Concrete surface defects are common in the concrete construction industr y. Th ese defects not only impair the normal function of concrete, but also undermine its visual effects. The one (1) hour course will review the cause of surface defects in concrete horizontal slabs. The course will give the viewer the ability to recognize the different types and causes of surface defects in horizontal concrete slabs.

Learn about surface treatments for preventative maintenance to avoid surface defects. concrete. Unformed Surface: A surface that does not require formwork to provide either shape or finish to the surface, e.g. the top surface of slabs or pavements. These surfaces generally have to meet two independent tolerance criteria: the ‘flatness’ of the surface.

Defects and damage in structures Rak Repair Methods of Structures I (4 cr), Fahim Al-Neshawy & Esko Sistonen, Autumn • Concrete Defects and Damage concrete’s surface. • The cracking is usually shallow (less than 3 mm deep) and not a structural issue.

Surface defects are non-structural imperfections that occur on hardened concrete slabs. Defects occur in the upper portion of the slab. Most surface defects are related to problems with the mix design or a poor finishing technique. Slide 7: Popouts The American Concrete Institute (ACI) defines popouts as the deformation caused when small.

In most delaminated concrete slab surfaces, the top 1/. to ¼ inch (3 to 6 mm) is densified, primarily due to premature and improper finishing, and separated from the base slab by a thin layer of air or water. The delami- nations on the surface of a slab may range in size from several square inches to many square.

These defects are typically identified when the concrete slab is being laid and simply requires some alteration to the actual concrete mix in order to prevent more blisters from appearing.

Blisters are more of an annoyance than they are a structural problem and shouldn’t cause any long-term issues for homeowners. Surface Defects Surface defects on slabs may include cracks, low wear resistance, dusting, scaling, popouts, blisters, delaminations, spalling, discoloration, low spots and curling, among others.

Sometimes these imperfections are of little consequence to the performance of the slab and may present only an aesthetic challenge. CIP 13 - Concrete Blisters WHAT are Blisters.

Blisters are hollow, low-profile bumps on the concrete surface, typically from the size of a dime up to 1 inch (25 mm), but occasionally even 2 or 3 inches (50 – 75 mm) in diameter. A dense troweled skin of mortar about 1/ 8 in. (3 mm) thick covers an underlying void. Plastic shrinkage cracks are an example of a kind of defect which does not involve wheel load.

These occur when wind velocity, low humidity, and high air temperature cause water to evaporate form the concrete surface more rapidly than it is replaced by bleeding. Spalls are unsightly defects that usually because of poor construction practices. Preventing concrete surface defects before they form is the best way to ensure deadlines are met, and concrete is cured to be strong and enduring.

Defects in Concrete Structures Any concrete defects research will tell you there are many factors that contribute to problems such as de-lamination, crazing, efflorescence, and : Launa Albrecht.

Scaling occurs when the surface of a hardened concrete slab breaks away from the slab to a depth of about 1/16 to 3/16 inch. This usually occurs at an early age of the slab. Possible Cause: Early cycles of freezing and thawing of the surface before newly placed concrete has been cured.

Concrete can deteriorate for a variety of reasons, and concrete damage is often the result of a combination of factors. The following summary discusses potential causes of concrete deterioration and the factors that influence them.

CORROSION OF EMBEDDED METALS Fig. Corrosion of reinforcing steel is the most common cause of concrete. 4 EVALUATION — Surface Defects AC /A Appendix B 9/10/ SURFACE DEFECTS Polishing A worn or polished surface may develop from traffic wearing off the surface mortar and skid-resistant texture.

An asphalt overlay or grinding the concrete surface can restore skid resistance. Map cracking A pattern of fine cracks usually. In hardened concrete, these are sometimes called crazing or surface checking.

An important thing to remember is that plastic shrinkage cracks are only cosmetic; being only in the surface layer, they seldom affect the performance of the slab. What to look for: A tight fine pattern of very thin cracks. the correct tolerance. Dusting the surface with dry cement, sand, or sprinkling with water is prohibited.

2. No wetting of concrete surfaces during slab finishing operations shall be permitted. Further, no concrete finishing operation shall be permitted while there is water on the surface of slabs and other flatwork. 3.Moisten the inside of the cone and place it on a flat, level and firm surface - a piece of steel plate, concrete or stone slab, sheet or metal pan etc.

This support should extend 50mm beyond the base of the cone to provide space for the concrete to spread when the cone is .Concrete Surface-Defects: Slab Defects Part Two In Part One of Concrete Surface Defects: Slab Defects we shared information about two specifice concrete defects, blisters and cracking.

Although the information shared is not comprehensive, it is designed to give the reader an overview of some of the causes and preventions of concrete blistering.
