Abstract: The purpose of this study was to clarify the internal changes in high strength concrete during destruction caused by freezing and thawing.
High strength concretes were studied experimentally with five different compositions.
Medium strength concrete was included for comparison. The concretes were subjected to freezing and thawing without deicing salts. In different states of degradation the strength of concretes and changes in ultrasonic pulse velocity and capillary water uptake were measured. The microstructure was analysed using mercury porosimetry and microscopical methods in order to determine the structural changes in the concrete.
