BEHAVIOR OF HARDENED CONCRETE DURING FREEZING

POSSIBILITIES OF EVALUATING THE FROST RESISTANCE OF HARDENED CONCRETE FROM RESULTS OF 1-CYCLE FREEZING TESTS IN COMBINATION WITH POROSITY DETERMINATIONS WERE STUDIED. THE PROBLEMS CONCERNED WITH THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TESTING METHODS, THE INTERPRETATION OF THE TEST DATA, AND THE CORRELATION OF TEST RESULTS WITH THE FIELD PERFORMANCE OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES ARE DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. DATA WERE OBTAINED ON MANY DIFFERENT CONCRETE MIXES, WITH DIFFERENT DURABILITY FACTORS, WHICH WERE SUBJECTED TO VARIATIONS IN THEIR CURING AND FREEZING PROCEDURES AND IN THE TEST METHODS USED. THE TEST RESULTS ON CYLINDER AND PRISM SPECIMENS WERE CORRELATED WITH THOSE PARAMETERS WHICH WERE CONSIDERED TO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT EFFECT ON THE FROST RESISTANCE OF CONCRETE, VIZ., DILATION FACTOR, PORE RATIO, AND DEGREE OF SATURATION , ON THE ONE HAND, AND DURABILITY FACTOR ON THE OTHER. /AUTHOR/
