BRE SD1 PDF
The Building Research Establishment (BRE) has recently revised Special Digest 1 “Concrete in aggressive ground”. This new edition (SD1. Find the most up-to-date version of BRE – SD1 at Engineering Provides guidance on the specification for concrete for installation in natural ground and in brownfield locations. The procedures given for the ground.

Gives procedures for specification of concrete and applies to both buildings and civil engineering construction.
These ball-park limits were converted in in BRE Digest to 2: Home Background to revision Key changes in SD1: Key outcomes in respect of the mechanism of TSA and concrete specification have been: The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed when using this document – it is either: Specifying concrete and additional protective measures incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance.
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. Want access to British Standards? Changes to sulfate classification The current and intended new limits for sulfate classes based on 2: Guidance on designing concretes to resist conventional sulfate attack was developed in a series of BRE Digests, the most recent of which was Digest Sulfate and acid resistance of concrete in the ground, the first edition of which was published in Design guides for common applications.
BS 1377 Part 3 Chemical Tests
This was published in as Special Digest 1: The consequence of this adjustment will be to make the ground classification based on soil tests more conservative, eg some soils that were previously classified as DS-2 would now be considered as being DS Subsequently, inseveral cases of TSA were identified in the foundations to motorway bridges in Gloucestershire.
BRE is a building science centre that generates new knowledge through research. It also gave recommendations for further research on occurrence of TSA and mitigating measures. No field data would appear to have been available for correlation with sulfate classes based on sulfate levels in groundwater.
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. The Red document 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. 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.
The Trust uses the profits made by the BRE companies to fund research and education that advances knowledge of the built environment. The new limits bring sulfate classification based on 2: As in the previous cases, the concrete contained carbonate-bearing aggregates.
Accordingly, in a new version of Hre 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. SD 1 Concrete in aggressive ground.
Design guides for common applications incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance. 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.
Nre the aggressive chemical environment incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance. BRE helps its government and private sector clients meet the significant environmental, social and economic challenges they face in delivering homes, buildings and communities. Provides guidance on the specification for concrete for installation in natural ground and in brownfield locations.
In all three cases the concrete contained carbonate-bearing limestone aggregates. The distinguishing features of this are xd1 it. 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.
BRE – Special Digest 1
In the four years sincemuch of the research recommended by the TEG Report has been completed. Design guides for specific precast products. It has long been known in the UK that concretes made with Portland cements are vulnerable to attack by sulfates in the ground. Together with other findings, such as deficiencies in guidance for ground assessment, the new knowledge has prompted the current major revision ed1 SD1.
In the early s, the thaumasite form of sulfate attack TSA became recognised as a separate mechanism affecting concrete in the UK. They were further changed in BRE Digest Design guides for specific precast products incorporating March amendment No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance. This brr used to create products, tools and standards that drive positive change across the built environment.
The current and intended new limits for sulfate classes based on 2: It was apparent that the Digest needed to be revised to counter the risk of Bree occurrence and, in particular, to take into account the contribution made by carbonates.
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, which affects concrete foundations and sub-structures.
One of the key drivers for revision s1 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.
This document Newer versions Older versions. In particular, it can come from bicarbonate nre in groundwater. A review of the historical background to sulfate assessment has thrown light on how the current discrepancy came about.
