Title: Freeze-Thaw Resistance of Concrete Containing Blast-Furnace Slag, Fly Ash or Condensed Silica Fume
Author(s): Jorma Virtanen
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 923-942
Keywords: air entrainment; blast furnace slag; concretes;
fly ash; freeze-thaw durability; silica.
Abstract:The use of ground granulated blast-furnace slag and fly ash has increased considerably in Finland. Silica fume has not been used in concrete in Finland so far, but research on its properties has been carried out for some years. The use of these materials has been limited because of the lack of knowledge on the durability of concrete containing slag, fly ash or silica. The freeze-thaw resistance of concrete has been evaluated using five different methods. Both air-entrained and non-air-entrained concretes were tested.
