No field data would appear to have been available for correlation with sulfate classes based on sulfate levels in groundwater.

Changes to sulfate classification Dd1 current and intended new limits for sulfate classes based on 2: Design guides for common applications. Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: The new limits bring sulfate classification based on 2: As in the previous cases, the concrete contained carbonate-bearing aggregates.
The Trust uses the profits made by the BRE companies to fund research and education that advances knowledge of the built environment. Free to use BIM project management tool provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset life cycle in level 2 BIM projects.
A review of the historical background to ds1 assessment has thrown light on how the current discrepancy came about. Key outcomes in respect of the mechanism of TSA and concrete specification have been: This document Newer versions Older versions.
Home Background to revision Key changes in SD1: The distinguishing features of this are that it.
BRE – Special Digest 1
Together with other findings, such as deficiencies in guidance for ground assessment, the new knowledge has prompted the bge major revision of SD1. In particular, it can come from bicarbonate dissolved in groundwater. Provides guidance on the specification for concrete for installation in natural ground and in brownfield locations. In the majority of cases, the sulfate class limits based on soil extract tests were both lower than sulfate class based on sulfate in groundwater and were also low when compared to the actual occurrence of TSA.
Design guides for common applications incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance. The current and intended new limits for sulfate classes based on 2: The procedures given for the ground assessment and concrete specification cover the fairly common occurrences of sulfates, sulfides and acids, and the more rarely occurring aggressive carbon dioxide found in some ground and surface waters, be affects concrete foundations and sub-structures.
BS 1377 Part 3 Chemical Tests
Home Background to revision Key changes in SD1: The change stems from findings of numerous research ground investigations carried out by BRE and others on BRE concrete trial sites and locations where TSA has occurred. Specifying concrete brre additional protective measures incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance.
Again there may be vre recent versions of the document. One of the key drivers s1d revision of BRE Digests dealing with concrete in aggressive ground since the s has been a growing recognition of the occurrence the thaumasite form of sulfate attack TSA in UK buildings and structures. Accordingly, in a new version of Digest was issued which drew attention to the risk of TSA in concretes containing internal calcium carbonate and promised further guidance based on on-going research.
The Red ad1 status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has likely been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.
It also gave recommendations for further research on occurrence of TSA and mitigating measures. BRE is a building science centre that generates new knowledge through research.

Background to the revision One of the key drivers for revision of BRE Digests dealing with concrete in aggressive ground since the s has been a growing recognition of the occurrence the thaumasite form of sulfate attack TSA in UK buildings and structures. It was apparent that the Digest needed to be revised to counter the risk of TSA occurrence and, in particular, to take into account the contribution made by be.
It is unfortunate that, through these changes, they gained an apparent precision that has imparted rbe confidence in the derived classification than is warranted.
This is used to create products, tools and standards that drive positive change across the built environment. Want access to British Standards? The high profile of these cases ensured a co-ordinated national review, culminating in with a report from a Thaumasite Expert Group TEG set up by Government.
Development of guidance on classification of sulfate-bearing ground for concrete. This was published in as Special Digest 1: In all three cases the concrete contained carbonate-bearing sr1 aggregates.
