Abstract: 18 concrete mixes with w/c ratios 0.40 (380 kg/m3 binder) and 0.65 (280 kg/m3 binder) were prepared changing only the cement type. The cements covered EN 197 Types I, II/A, II/B, III/A, III/B, IV/A, and IV/B. The potential durability of those concretes was assessed by several short term tests (mass transport of water, gases and ions and accelerated carbonation). All tests but one (O2 diffusivity) are covered by national or international standards. The paper presents the results obtained and discusses the influence of w/c ratio and cement type on the performance of the concretes. The correlation between different tests is also discussed, in view of developing performance based specifications.
