Techniques for rapid evaluation of frost-resistance of concrete products

Application: determination of the actual hardiness of vibration pressed concrete products.

Advantages: techniques allows determining frost-resistance and expected life of concrete products in 5 days using nondestructive testing (without a long-term cyclic tests).

Key features: techniques and adequately reflects the corresponding changes in concrete structures. It allows quantifying the degree of frost-resistance of concrete products, determining its «residual» frost-resistance and expected service life.

Developed: Research and Testing Laboratory for Concrete and Constructive Materials, Supervisor – Prof. Eduard Batyanovsky, D.Sc.
