DURABILITY INVESTIGATIONS

THE PURPOSE IS TO SHOW THE NEED FOR A RATHER COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION OF THE PHENOMENA RELATING TO DURABILITY OF CONCRETE. AT THE PRESENT TIME, FREEZING AND THAWING TESTS ARE MADE IN DIFFERENT LABORATORIES, BUT THE METHODS DIFFER WIDELY AND THEY GIVE DIFFERENT RESULTS. SIMILARLY, AGGREGATES ARE TESTED WITH VARIOUS FORMS OF ARTIFICIAL ACCELERATE SOUNDNESS TESTS. IT IS BELIEVED THAT CERTAIN FACTORS REGARDING AGGREGATES AND REGARDING CONDITIONS OF EXPOSURE ARE BEING OVERLOOKED IN CONNECTION WITH LABORATORY INVESTIGATIONS OF SOUNDNESS. ATTENTION IS CALLED TO SOME OF THESE PHENOMENA WITH THE PURPOSE OF STIMULATING DISCUSSION WHICH MAY LEAD TO A CLARIFICATION OF THE NEEDS IN CONNECTION WITH SOUNDNESS TESTING. /AUTHOR/
