ASTM International Presents Special Issue on Recent Advancement in Concrete Freezing-Thawing Durability

Press release date: May 12, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-STP 1511, Special Issue on Recent Advancement in Concrete Freezing-Thawing (F-T) Durability, is now available from ASTM International. The publication features ten peer-reviewed papers on new techniques for characterizing and predicting the performance of concrete subjected to freezing-thawing (F-T) cycles. STP 1511 highlights recent advances in concrete F-T durability and will facilitate significant improvements in concrete void characterization, F-T durability evaluation and test specifications. Topics covered in the issue include: -new technologies and test methods for characterizing air voids in fresh cement paste and hardened concrete; -state-of-the art information on F-T durability of special concrete, such as lightweight concrete, engineered cementitious composites and pervious concrete; -effects of void parameters on concrete F-T resistance; -new test method for determining air entraining agent demand of a concrete mixture; and -guidance for interpreting F-T test results of field concrete and for reconciling laboratory-based specifications with field experience. STP 1511, Special Issue on Recent Advancement in Concrete Freezing-Thawing (F-T) Durability, is available in both print (194 pages; soft cover 6 x 9"; stock # STP1511; ISBN: 978-0-8031-3419-5) and as an E-book (stock # STP1511-EB; ISBN: 978-0-8031-8423-7) for $65.
