RESISTANCE OF CONCRETE TO FROST ACTION AS AFFECTED BY THE WATER-CEMENT RATIO

ON ACCOUNT OF THE GROWNG TENDENCY IN SOME LOCALITIES TOWARD DECREASING THE AMOUNT OF CEMENT IN CONCRETE FOR HIGHWAY USE ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT STRENGTH IS THE CONTROLLING FACTOR, THE COMMITTEE HAS REVIEWED THE EVIDENCE CONCERNING THE RELATION BETWEEN RESISTANCE TO FROST ACTION AND WATER-CEMENT RATIO, THE MAXIMUM WATER- CEMENT RATIO ALLOWABLE FOR CONCRETE EXPOSED TO THE WEATHER, AND THE RELATION BETWEEN STRENGTH AND DURABILITY. THE AVAILABLE TEST DATA SHOW A DECIDED RELATION BETWEEN WATER-CEMENT RATIO AND DURABILITY. /AUTHOR/
