Sir, can you please elaborate me why sulphate resisting cement used in canal lining?

In sulphate resisting cement c3a qty is so less & c3s& c2s is more qty c3a react with Naso4 mgso4 produce ca salpho alumintae.

What is meant by lining?

Amit Ami Sharma said: (Aug 28, 2016)  
Lining means to provide an extra coating to project natural surface.

Sulphate resisting cement is generally applied in coastal areas to avoid sulphate attack. Here rapid hardening cement should be applied.

I think quick cement is the right.

Because this cement use in under water construction.

(A) Sulphate Resisting Portland Cement is correct Ans.

In this cement, the percentage of Tricalcium aluminate is kept below 5% and its results in the increase in resisting powder against sulphates. It is used for structures which are likely to be damaged by severe alkaline conditions such as canal linings, culverts etc.

Correct @Shekhar.

Sulfate resisting cement is used in construction exposed to severe sulfate action by water and soil in places like canals linings, culverts, retaining walls, siphons, etc.
