This paper examines the abrasion resistance of high early-strength concrete developed for rapid repair of highways and bridge decks. The cement types chosen for this study included ASTM Type III, ASTM Type V, and Calcium Sulfoaluminate (CSA) cements. A cement content of 386 kg/m3 (650 lb/yd3) was maintained for all studied concretes. Test samples were tested after 24 hours and 28 days of curing in order to evaluate compressive strength and depth of wear. Test results revealed that the opening time to attain minimum required compressive strength for CSA cement concrete was one hour, whereas the values for Type V and Type III cement concretes were 8.5 and 6 hours, respectively. After 24 hours curing, CSA cement concrete displayed the highest strength, but lowest resistance to wear. The 28-day cured CSA cement concrete produced the highest strength and resistance to abrasion, while Type III cement concrete showed a similar strength, but lower resistance to wear, when compared to those of the Type V cement concrete.
