Abstract

Anthropogenic acid pollutants, above all SO2, have been deteriorating large parts of the environment, causing economical damages of approximately 1% of the national budgets1, 2. Concerning concrete structures, decay is a consequence of local tensional overload. At cement-aggregate interfaces flexural strength is a minimum. These interfaces exhibit also high frost and corrosion sensitivity3. Therefore analytical studies of the interfaces are expected to yield significant information on concrete deterioriation caused by acid attack.
