Abstract:
The presentation will discuss a new concept of particle compliance with respect to particle additives that form annulus voids when concrete freezes. The discussion will show how such concept is combined with spacing factor and protected paste volume concepts to provide a unified basis for analyzing either air-void systems or annulus-void systems that protect concrete from freezing-and-thawing damage.
