AbstractOrdinary Portland cement (OPC) paste specimens and compacted C?S?H (I) powders were immersed in distilled water and aqueous salt solutions of varying concentration to study their volume change behavior. Immersion resulted in ionic interaction leading to various degrees of expansion, leaching, softening and dissolution of the test samples. In all cases relatively rapid expansion occurred.
