ADEQUATE CAPACITY FOR RESISTANCE TO FROST AND DE-ICING SALT

AUSREICHEND WIDERSTANDSFAEHIG GEGEN FROST UND TAUSALZE

The information sheet "Examination of Concrete Products for Road Construction having Joints Capable of Withstanding Frost and Salt" published in January 1979 by the Federal German Association of the Concrete- and Pre-cast Unit-Industry its reproduced in full. Although the mechanism in concrete for reacting to frost and salt had been widely researched, until now no uniform view of the matter was possible, such as a forecast about the reaction in practice. The suggested test procedure, the sprinkled-salt method followed by rolling, should enable results to be collected which can then, insofar as it is applicable, be compared with results from practical experience. It is still open as to which grade of weathering, determined as loss in mm can be allowed. Because the time and resource expenditure for the test is considerable, reference should be made to other types of test for specific inspection, with which the frost-salt resistance capacity may be judged. Reference is made to the difficulties of carrying out the tests on mildewed and multi-layered concrete. (TRRL)
