|Title: International RILEM Conference Materials Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering 2016 (MSSCE 2016) on Frost Action in Concrete
Edited by Marianne Tange Hasholt, Katja Fridh and R. Doug Hooton
Publication date: 2016
This volume contains the proceedings of the MSSCE 2016 conference segment on “Frost action in concrete”. Despite research in this field has been ongoing since the 1930’es, the mechanism(s) leading to frost damage is not fully understood. Therefore, there is still a need for both basic research and practical solutions to the challenges encountered in the field.
The present conference segment comprises 24 papers from all over the northern hemisphere. Within the overall theme “Frost action in concrete”, the contributions deal with many different topics, for example: the relation between mix design and frost resistance, modelling of frost action, combined action when concrete is exposed to freeze/thaw load together with other types of load, air void analysis, novel non-destructive test methods, and experience gained from monitoring of structures as well as from field exposure sites.
The event “Materials, Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering 2016” 15-29 August 2016, Lyngby, Denmark, is scientifically sponsored by RILEM. The event is hosted by the Department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark and is financially sponsored by a number of independent foundations and organizations.
