This study examines the suitability of ASTM Type V cement concrete for rapid repair applications. To this end, experimental results on transport and durability properties of high early-strength concretes using ASTM Type V cement were compared with those of a more traditional cement used for rapid repair, i.e. Type III cement. A cement content of 445 kg/m3 (750 lb/yd3) was maintained for all studied concretes. The experimental program included compressive strength, absorption, rapid chloride migration, corrosion resistance, and mass loss due to freezing and thawing regimes. The results of this study revealed that use of Type III and V cements were both effective for concrete rapid repair applications. The opening time to reach the minimum compressive strength of 21 MPa (3000 psi) was found dissimilar. Type III cement concrete showed better strength properties at early ages due to its high fineness. However, as curing age was extended to 24 hours and 28 days, Type V cement concrete produced higher strength results. Moreover, Type III cement concretes failed to display better performance in transport properties, corrosion, and frost resistance when compared to that of the studied Type V cement concretes.
