"Concrete degradation may have various causes. Concrete can be damaged by fire, aggregate expansion, sea water effects, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching, physical damage and chemical damage (from carbonization, chlorides, sulfates and distilled water). This process adversely affects concrete exposed to these damaging stimuli."
