Destructive and non-destructive assessment of the frost resistance of concrete with different aggregate
MetadataShow full item record
The paper focuses on determining the frost resistance of concrete using selected destructive and non-destructive test methods. The experiment was performed with four specially made concretes, which differed only in the origin of sand and coarse aggregate. The primary outcome of the experiment are the differences in frost resistance as measured by different methods. In addition, it briefly describes the influence that the choice of aggregate has on the frost resistance of concrete.
