USE OF INTERNAL-SURFACE-AREA MEASUREMENTS IN RESEARCH ON FREEZING AND THAWING OF MATERIALS

MEASUREMENTS OF SURFACE BY LOW-TEMPERATURE NITROGEN SORPTION HAVE BEEN MADE ON SPECIMENS OF BUILDING STONES, BRICKS, AND HYDRATED CEMENT. MEASUREMENTS HAVE ALSO BEEN MADE ON CRUSHED LIMESTONES AND CHERTS WITH GOOD AND BAD SERVICE RECORDS AS CONCRETE AGGREGATES. OF THE MATERIALS EXAMINED, THOSE WITH HIGHER INTERNAL SURFACES HAD, ON THE AVERAGE, POORER RESISTANCE TO FREEZING AND THAWING THAN THOSE WITH LOWER SURFACE AREAS. /AUTHOR/
