Abstract: This paper discusses the development of Controlled Short-Life Porous Concrete (CSLPC). CSLPC is a newly proposed special and green concrete whose life (structural protection) is shortly controlled by technical method. CSLPC is applied for temporary protection of embankment of river and dam until plants take their roots into the soil. Consequently CSLPC will protect the embankments during short period (three to five years for example) and then will lose its strength and assimilate to the soil.Total of four different types of auto-assimilation mixtures were investigated under different exposure conditions in this study. Experimental study and analytical prediction of CSLPC were evaluated in this study.
