Özet

Two series of concrete samples with silica fume addition were produced from the mixtures with tap water or sea water, as mixing water. It was found that sea water has no harmful influence on the concrete mix properties, but increase the rate of concrete hardening. This caused the increase of concrete strength, which was observed till the end of measurements i.e. till 90 days. However the increase of strength after 90 days was smaller than after 28 days.
