A STUDY OF THE FROST DAMAGE OF CONCRETE: 2-FREEZING OF CONCRETE CONTAINING DIFFERENT SURFACE ACTIVE SOLUTIONS

In order to evaluate the improvement in the frost resistance of air-entrained concrete, experiments were carried out with ordinary portland cement and water/surface active agent solutions mixed in air and in vacuum, then casting prisms from the pastes and subjecting them to freezing and thawing cycles after moist-curing for 28 days. Analysis of the results suggests that the reduction in the ice-cement bond and the cohesive strength of the ice plays a more important role than the air-bubbles in increasing the frost resistance of air-entrained concrete. /TRRL/
