Title: Freeze-Thaw Durability of Lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites

Abstract:Freeze-thaw durability of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced cement composites incorporating different fiber and aggregate volume fractions was assessed experimentally. The increase in fiber and aggregate contents up to certain limits improved the freeze-thaw durability of the composite. Further increase in fiber and aggregate contents, however, had negative effects on durability. Well-propositioned carbon fiber reinforced cement composites were observed to reach desirable levels of freeze-thaw durability without air entrainment.
