Expansion of Hanford concrete

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report presents results of measurements of thermal expansion of concrete cores from Hanford, Washington facilities, and concrete cast at the Construction Technology Laboratories of Portland Cement Association (CTL/PCA). Thermal expansion was measured from room temperature to 1600/sup 0/F on 0.5 x 3.0-in. specimens heated at a rate of 10/sup 0/F/min. Specimens were cored from concrete cylinders cast at CTL/PCA in 1975 and 1977, and from cylindrical cores taken from the Purex Building and Waste Tank Farms at the Hanford, Washington complex. A total of 14 specimens were tested: eight tests on CTL/PCA cast concrete, two tests on material from ... continued below
