Abstract: 
The behavior of ordinary concrete and high strength concrete under sewerage corrosion attacks is studied in the presented work. The specimens were immersed into artificial concentrating solution with chemical oxygen demand (COD) up to 9800mg/L. The changes of strength and weight of the specimens were studied. Properties of cement-based materials, which are exposed to the artificial concentrating sewerage, have been analyzed using SEM and X-ray diffraction. Concrete corrosion significantly affected by microorganism in sewerage is discussed in this paper.
