Abstract:Theoretical aspects of concrete resistance to freezing and deicing chemicals are shown in causal terms. Different constituents and concreting procedures result in different concretes. Furthermore, environmental influences cause a series of physical processes that are also presented in the paper. These physical mechanisms cause stresses that may result in concrete damages. The second part of the paper contains a survey of methods for testing the resistance of concrete to freezing and deicing chemicals. The most common methods are presented in a flowchart showing the advantages and disadvantages of a method and its applicability for a particular structure.
