Abstract:Describes a laboratory investigation of concrete to determine the effect of the various brands of Type 10 portland cement with and without interground limestone on the strength and freeze-thaw durability. Two classes of concrete and two combinations of aggregates were used in the investigations. A variation in the strength of concrete made with the various cements was found. The limestone addition increases the concrete strength. Concretes made with each of the cements had very good resistance to freezing and thawing in water. However, there was a considerable variation in the resistance to salt scaling.
