Ten papers in Special Issue on Recent Advancement in Concrete
Freezing-Thawing (F-T) Durability present new techniques for characterizing and predicting concrete performance in the face of temperature extremes. They cover new test methods for characterizing fresh cement paste and hardened concrete air voids; latest practice on F-T durability of pervious pavement, lightweight concrete, and engineered cementitious composites; effects of void parameters on F-T resistance; new test method for determining a mixture's air-entraining agent demand; and, guidance for interpreting F-T test results of field concrete and reconciling laboratory-based specifications with field experience. The publication is available for $65 in print (194 pages; STP1511; ISBN: 978-0-8031-3419-5) or E-book
