Title: Frost Resistant Concrete
Author(s): R. B. Young
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 477-492
Abstract:Most frost deterioration is due to a few prevent- able causes, of which the most common is segregation from undersanded and harsh mixes, improper placing, and overworking. Other causes are defective construction joints, and inadequate provision for drainage. Severity of exposure is an important factor in determining the amount of frost deterioration. Frost resistant concrete is one made according to well recognized standards of quality in which, by adequate and com- petent supervision, more than average care has been taken with regard to those details that experience has shown to be the cause of frost deterioration.
