Mechanisms and modelling of concrete damage due to freezing

Dalibor Sekulić, Mario Ille

Abstract

An overview of mechanisms of concrete damage due to freezing, but without presence of deicing salt, is presented. Some models enabling prediction of concrete damage are described. The models aimed at predicting durability of concrete structures exposed to freezing action have been developed based on modelling and measurement of damage mechanisms. However, the authors stress that is quite difficult to develop a successful model due to concrete microstructure which is subject to changes, and also because of a multitude of parameters that are responsible for the degradation of concrete.
