Effect of microorganisms on the weathering of concrete pastes

Project Details

Description

"urban structures are naturally degraded by weathering, salinity and microbial activity, and microorganisms can accelerate the dissolution of minerals, generating pathologies such as the darkening of concrete, the loss of mass and the growth of plants. weathering is basically due to the organic acids produced by the different microorganisms, bacteria, fungi and / or lichens, to which the concrete may be exposed. "

Objective

To determine the effect of microorganisms that produce organic acids in the biodeterioration and weathering of urban structures simulated with cement pastes.
