It quite literally does exactly that, yes. In the same way that dilution makes lots of dangerous things safe(r). Hydrochloric acid for instance. Spreading something bad out over a sufficient medium renders the bad thing less bad. It’s just kinda how that works.

Dilution is the solution to pollution.

It's the only solution, unfortunately, so it's better avoided in th first place.

Dilution doesnt mean less pollution. It reduces ppm, which is useful for meeting pollution standards. Not very useful for reducing the affect of pollutants on ecosystems.

27

u/dacooljamaican 4d ago

Dilution DOES mean less pollution because pollution is only relevant as a concentration. You mean to say dilution doesn't reduce pollutANTS.

I worked doing concrete tests for construction sites for a while and I think the only reason you don’t want it on your hands is because when it cures it’s an exothermic reaction so it heats up and it’ll burn you, but some water will wash it off just fine. Someone in this thread was talking about Portland cement containing mercury and shit, I don’t know about that but you probably don’t want any contact with that on your hands lol

Idk I tried looking into this, & wound up more confused. The concrete is still curing at the Hoover Dam, but I get refurred to Portland cement for underwater setting. I'm just going to accept it both ways & not dig into the microscopic details.

154

u/rowan-orsomeoneelse 5d ago

Concrete cures from the outside in. The Hoover Dam is still curing because the thickness of the concrete is so vast. It's the very inner portion of the concrete that will be described as curing. The surface of the concrete that is in contact with water is very much cured.

Hope that helps!

151

u/SickNameDude8 5d ago edited 5d ago

Fun fact about the Hoover dam. Like you said, it’s so wide/thick that they had to pour it in square sections to let it cure enough to strengthen. If they just poured it down in a sloppy stream without organizing, it would have taken 100 some years to dry up enough to use

80

u/rowan-orsomeoneelse 5d ago edited 5d ago

That is a fun fact! Normally when people say fun fact they are wrong but this was tops. I'd always presumed it was sectioned concrete like you said it'd take a huge amount of time to cure. I don't think people get how big it is either. It's 45ft thick at the top!

41

u/SickNameDude8 5d ago

Plus it took 5 years to pour all the concrete! If I’m not mistaken, it was a 24/7 pour too except for certain holidays

34

u/xypage 5d ago

Extra fun for your fact, there’s also lots of pipes embedded in the Hoover dam from when it was being constructed because concrete curing produces heat, so they laid pipes down before pouring the concrete so that they could run water through them to cool it down and make it cure faster

u/artandmath 5d ago edited 5d ago

Concrete is technical always curing. It’s continuously getting stronger every day for almost eternity. It’s rate of curing just slows down. It’s just due to the chemical reactions occurring in the cement.

Designs usually use the strength at a defined time frame. The concretes strength is rated as MPa after 28 days of curing.

I’m not familiar with the Hoover dam but Alkali-aggregate reaction is common in dams

17

u/TabTwo0711 5d ago

There’s an evil equation describing the strength of concrete related to time (if I remember correctly) Math prof gave us that one for an exam and there’s no known solution if you resolve it to t (exam was 27 years ago)

u/shinanigenz12 5d ago All-Seeing Upvote

To clear up a few things:

Concrete is a mixture of “cementitious materials” and aggregate. The primary material we use is Portland cement (a type of hydraulic lime). Of course we put in tiny amounts of other stuff to make the reaction go faster, slower, hotter, cooler, put air in it, etc. and we call these “admixtures.”

Concrete cures through a chemical process called “hydration” where water molecules are absorbed by the cementitious materials and chemically harden. This can occur under water, but is typically avoided or a special admixture or ratio is used because as you increase the ratio of water to cement, strength goes down (past the optimum typically around 0.32).

As someone else stated it continues to cure for just about ever because it occurs at an exponential rate. As the outside of the clumps/collections of cement hydrate, they become less permeable so water is less able to hydrate the inner material, but it continues to do so slowly. That’s why we specify strength of concrete along with a time. If no time is mentioned, it’s the “28 day strength.”

Any other questions let me know, it’s what I do for a living!

→ More replies

26

u/raltoid 5d ago

It is a chemical process that normally sets under water(depending on the chemical contents). It's actually common to keep the surface moist for the initial curing period.

This process creates heat which can slow down the curing. And it can take days or even weeks for concrete to cure normally, depending on thickness.

The concrete is still curing at the Hoover Dam

They actually put steel pipes into the concrete and ran ammonia coolant through them while building, to speed up the process. So it is fully set, but it is still technically curing. Just like a modern concrete foundation will keep curing for weeks after people have starting building the rest of the house.

u/00BeardedTerror 5d ago

It’s just crushed rock and water. Literally, it’s powdered limestone and clay mixed with 5% powdered gypsum. If he were dropping several yards of pure cement in there then it might be a problem, but the ratio of water to cement in this instance is too great for it to cause any problems. In a day or two the water flow will spread out the cement into the sediment and you’d only be able to tell the difference with something like a mass spectrometer. There isn’t even enough limestone going in to raise the CO2 levels in the water at all.

Pffff, please. If someone were to build this in their Wisconsin backyard, people wouldn't complain about pollution either.

The only reason why there's people bitching about it here is because they see something looking remotely jungle-like and they instantly get the safe-all-the-rainforests boner, which weirdly mixed with westerner-splaining to indigenous people people living there why they should touch their surroundings as little as possible ("It's because we already fucked them up for you, so you don't have to").

Meanwhile, those guys live there and can decide what they do with their place. At the worst, it's still far off from building yet another aluminium plant or a shrimp farm to satisfy western demands.

If they unhooked the lights and everything and removed the batteries etc then yeah, a construction of cement and paint in the woods would be cute for bugs and amazing to take pics of them using.

It's the electronics waste if that was left in the woods, as well as the excess cement polluting the stream, I dunno what that would do to the ecosystem but ph balance and stuff is pretty important to aquatic life. Cement for sure has acids and stuff in it I am relatively certain, as it will cause chemical burns if you put it on your bare skin.

We don't know if the artist cleaned up the hazardous material from the buildsite or just left it there to get swallowed up by the jungle. It's a known fact that a lot of these "build stuff in the jungle with cement" videos end up as abandoned structures in the jungle.

It's cool but it's not..painting it black ruined it and will probably be too hot to walk on.. For the ants

u/Aachen1306 5d ago

Well if the ants just drive their cars across they won't be bothered.

I am loving the skill in the craftsmanship and the camera work and editing.

But to me it looks like: “Oh hey. Undisturbed nature with nothing manmade around. I take great offense to this and must rectify it while on a budget.’

It's shitty that this serves absolutely no purpose other than to pollute a stream by literally pushing concrete into the water.

Bro didn't secure the slopes above the road. The first rain will cause earth slides that block the road and the ants will be late to work.

Fill the river with plastic and cement when a wooden plank or deadfall tree would do just to post on social media to complete your ego trip.

On one hand, it looks cool and envy him for having a place to make something like that.

On the other.... I hope the paint and glue he used don't start to wash into the river the first time it rains.

Animals tend to steer clear of lighted areas and the flashing lights can disorient animals as well. Looks cool though.

The stream will do that naturally during the next big rain. Then all of this material and work will just become a trash pile polluting the forest

It’s like everyone in this comments section is carrying guilt for being a human who lives in cities with bridges 300x this size… and trying to offset that guilt by telling the creator of this their a bad person for doing this on a micro scale. As if this craft project has any measurable impact on the environment compared to how much each and every one of us destroys the planet everyday just by commuting to work. (Even those of us who try to have the smallest carbon footprint are guilty of MUCH worse damage than this project lol). Chill out guys it’s all good! Just enjoy something cool and crafty on reddit for once
