Abstract

Although Portland cement based materials are one of the most remarkable and versatile construction materials, a clear need is perceived for the improvement of their long-term performance in the extreme conditions. The proposed paper is a part of the larger study on the effects of high-energy beam of laser radiation on high strength concrete. The experimental results indicate the potential application of laser radiation for the modification of surface layers and highlight the implications on durability of concrete elements.
