The weakness of concrete with drying-shrinkage reducing agent is poor freeze-thaw resistance. Drying-shrinkage reducing agent that improves this weakness has been recently developed, and requires that the agent be added to the concrete at a later stage. This study compared the freeze-thaw resistance of concrete with post-added drying-shrinkage reducing agent against concrete with existing drying-shrinkage reducing agent.
The results showed that the recently developed drying-shrinkage reducing agent was effective for improving freeze-thaw resistance.
