Design of systems for time delayed activated internal release of chemicals in concrete from porous fibers, aggregates of prills, to improve durability

Incorporation of chemicals into the internal matrix of cement or concrete, with later release occurring upon stimulation, alters the matrix parameters from those at the initial set. Permeability is reduced, for example, and therefore durability enhanced. The advantages of these designs would be the ability to reduce maintenance and repair costs in the initial building configuration and to delay the time of eventual repair. The components and the structure could take greater environmental abuse also.
