Standard Test Method for Resistance of Concrete to Rapid Freezing and Thawing
|Publication Date:||10 June 2003|
|ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products):||91.100.30|
This test method covers the determination of the resistance of
concrete specimens to rapidly repeated cycles of freezing and
thawing in the laboratory by two different procedures: Procedure A,
Rapid Freezing and Thawing in Water, and Procedure B, Rapid
Freezing in Air and Thawing in Water. Both procedures are intended
for use in determining the effects of variations in the properties
of concrete on the resistance of the concrete to the
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units shall be regarded separately as standard. The SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two units may result in nonconformance.
All material in this test method not specifically designated as belonging to Procedure A or Procedure B applies to either procedure.
