Title: Correlation Between Rapid Immersion And Standard Four Cycle Per Day Freezing And Thawing Tests
Author(s): E. R. Dawley
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 157-160
Abstract:Progress report of an investigation attempting to shorten the time required to measure resistance of rock to freezing and thawing. The rapid method consists of a direct immersion of the specimen in freezinq solutions for IO min. then thawina. in running water for 5 min, wiping, and returning to the freezing solution. Two solutions, Skellvsolve F and mercury, were used. Tests of three kinds of rock by the standard method and the rapid method are described. Disintegration of the specimens was slightly more rapid using the rapid method. The standard method caused more damage by splitting.
