    Just off the top of my head, I am inclined to think that this is going to depend strongly on what the aggregate is, what the strength of the concrete is, how much steel is in the concrete, and probably the age of the concrete.

    I would suggest that you look for published reports from the Army arsenals. They are the sort of folks that do this type of work routinely.

    The ladies must feel ostracised, I'm sure. :tongue:
    This is almost certainly an area of interest to your supervisor, has s/he not given you some suggested preliminary reading?
