SECONDARY EFFECT OF ASR ON DURABILITY OF CONCRETE: FREEZE/THAW

The durability of ASR infected concrete to cyclic freeze/thaw was investigated. It was discovered that high strength concrete, which is commonly regarded as "immune" from freeze/thaw damage, became susceptible due to the presence of ASR cracking. The ultimate expansion caused by ASR together with freeze/thaw was greater than that caused by ASR alone, and in some cases disintegration of the specimen was the final result.
