Abstract

This paper explores cool and moderate temperature (2-19 °C) impacts on hydration heat and expansive pressure development in two commercial soundless chemical demolition agents (SCDAs). Experimental results showed (1) product-specific, linear relationships between the ambient temperature and time to peak hydration heat; (2) peak hydration heats to be consistently 1.5 times the ambient temperatures at 10-19°C; outside of this range the factor was greater; (3) a linear relationship between peak hydration heat time and the onset of expansive pressure development; (4) a largely proportional relationship between ambient temperature and volumetric expansion of 1.1-1.4 times the original volume.
