CALCIUM CHLORIDE IN TYPE V-CEMENT CONCRETE. DURABILITY OF CONCRETE. G.M. IDORN INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, 1990 ANNUAL ACI CONVENTION, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA

Most authoritative works that discuss the issue of whether or not calcium chloride should be permitted to be used as an accelerating admixture in concrete made with Type V sulfate-resisting cement, say don't do it. The origin of this warning is reviewed and the conclusion is reached that it is probably not harmful to the obtaining of the desired level of sulfate resistance for which the use of Type V cement was specified to use calcium chloride in normally acceptable amounts as an accelerating admixture in such concrete to mitigate the effects of cold weather.
