ELIMINATE PREMATURE DETERIORATION OF PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE CONTROL OR ELIMINATION OF RIGID PAVEMENT DETERIORATION DUE TO D-CRACKING

THE SCOPE, OBJECTIVE, AND TASK PLAN FOR RESEARCH OF A PROJECT TO IMPROVE THE FREEZE-THAW DURABILITY OF CONCRETE ARE PRESENTED. THE GENERAL APPROACH WILL BE TO IDENTIFY PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SUSCEPTIBLE AGGREGATES AND DEVELOP A LABORATORY TEST CAPABLE OF RAPID IDENTIFICATION OF THESE AGGREGATES.
