Evaluation of brick resistance to freeze / thaw cycles according to indirect procedures

Martina Vračević, Janja Ranogajec, Snežana Vučetić, Ivanka Netinger

Abstract

The brick resistance was tested in the paper by direct method, and according to some indirect procedures presented in international literature and regulations. Requirements for indirect estimation of brick resistance to freeze / thaw cycles set by Canadian and U.S. standards have proven to be inapplicable, and the same applies to estimation based on pore structure. A connection between absorption/ desorption of water and brick resistance to freeze/thaw cycles was observed.

Keywords
compressive strength, Water absorption, resistance to freeze/thaw cycles, boiling absorption, saturation coefficient, pore structure, absorption/desorption of water
