Recent advancement in concrete freezing-thawing (F-T) durability.


Recent advancement in concrete freezing-thawing (F-T) durability.

Ed. by Kejin Wang.

ASTM International


181 pages



Journal of ASTM International selected technical papers; STP1511


Four of the ten papers in this special issue of the Journal of ASTM International (JAI) focus on new technologies and test methods for characterizing air voids in fresh cement paste and hardened concrete. Three papers provide information on FT durability of special concrete, such as lightweight concrete. One paper emphasizes the effects of void parameters on concrete FT resistance, and one paper introduces a new method for determining the air-entraining agent demand of a concrete mixture. A final paper offers guidance on interpreting FT test results of field concrete and on reconciling lab-based specifications with field experience. B&w images are included. The book is for researchers and engineers. There is no subject index. Wang is affiliated with Iowa State University.
