Abstract:
The thermal coefficient of expansion and the dynamic modulus of elasticity of concrete have been determined under short-term steady state temperatures, -100 to 150F (-73 to 66C). Specimens were cured both saturated and air-dried in the laboratory and tested at 7, 28, 84 days at at one year.
