Abstract:
Reports effect of 150 cycles of freezing and thawing on the flexural and compressive strength of 100 concrete prisms. Little or no damage was suffered byconcrete with 0.54 water-cement ratio, by weight, containing 43/4 sacks of cement per cu yd. The flexure test was a far more sensitive measure of resistance to freezing and thawing than the compression test.
