Title: Effect of Design and Details on Concrete Deterioration
C O N C R E T E DETERIORATION
Author(s): P. D. Miesenhelder
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 581-590
Abstract:Features of design or of construction of a concrete structure often are important contributing causes of concrete deterioration. Primarily, deterioration is a result of freezing and thavving. Such deterioration is often thought of as a consequence of the number of times freezing and thawing occurs but in the examples pictured the major factor is the high degree of saturation which existed at the time of freezing. This high degree of saturation is usually a con-sequence of inadequate or no drainage provisions at critical points. T his paper consists essentially of pictures of structures from a large area which illustrate examples and the wide extent of occurrence.
