CONCRETING IN COLD WEATHER -I' THE EFFECTS OF FREEZING ON THE PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE

THE MECHANISM OF FROST-ACTION IN CONCRETE RESULTING IN ITS DESTRUCTION IS EXPLAINED ON THE BASIS OF THE TABER-COLLINS HYPOTHESIS IN THE CASE OF FREEZING OF FRESH CONCRETE AND ON THE BASIS OF POWERS HYDRAULIC PRESSURE HYPOTHESIS, /OR THE DEGREE OF SATURATION HYPOTHESIS/ IN THE CASE OF HARDENED CONCRETE. REFERENCE IS MADE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH, AND THE EFFECTS ON MODULUS OF RUPTURE, DURABILITY, VOLUME CHANGE, DYNAMIC MODULUS OF ELASTICITY AND THE CREEP OF THE CONCRETE. /RRL/
