DURABILITY TEST OF CERTAIN PORTLAND CEMENTS

TESTS ON THE RELATIVE RESISTANCE TO FREEZING AND THAWING AND CERTAIN OTHER INFLUENCES OF 1:2 MORTAR WERE MADE WITH TEN COMMERCIAL PORTLAND CEMENTS DIFFERING IN CHEMICAL COMPOSITION. CROSS BENDING AND COMPRESSION STRENGTHS OF 2 BY 2 BY 12-IN. PRISMS WERE DETERMINED AFTER MOIST CURING TO VARIOUS AGES. THESE WERE COMPARED WITH THE STRENGTHS OF OTHER SPECIMENS WHICH HAD BEEN FROZEN AND THAWED AT DIFFERENT RATES AND FOR DIFFERENT NUMBERS OF CYCLES. THE DATA ARE AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION OF KNOWLEDGE ON THE METHOD OF CONDUCTING THE FREEZING AND THAWING TEST, THE RELATION OF THE RESULTS OF SUCH TESTS TO THE EVAPORABLE WATER IN THE MORTAR AND THE RELATIVE RESISTANCE TO FREEZING AND THAWING AND TO SULFATE SOLUTIONS OF CEMENTS DIFFERING IN COMPOSITION. /AUTHOR/
