Testing resistance of concrete to frost action

Azra Kurtović

Abstract

The laboratory determination of dependence between the standard testing of unreinforced concrete to frost resistance (15 cm cubes), and the resistance of similar concrete in real conditions, is described in the paper. The dependence is expressed through the number of basic equivalent real cycles, not taking into account the type of concrete, ambient humidity, etc. The author cautions that appropriate corrective parameters should be introduced if relevant differences are registered (composition, water saturation, dimensions, etc.).

Keywords
equivalent real cycle, unreinforced concrete, resistance of concrete to frost action, standard testing, real temperature conditions
