Tag: Moisture state Freeze-thaw in concrete Moisture state

The volume expansion occurring on conversion of water to ice and associated water movement cannot be accommodated in fully saturated concrete. The drier the concrete, the more capacity it has to absorb the pressures associated with ice formation and water flow under hydraulic and osmotic influences. Thus minimising the degree of saturation of the pore structure is an important controlling
