The project will address the mechanism(s) of deterioration in frost salt scaling (FSS) including the potentially protective effect of entrained air voids and the performance of low-clinker blends. Frost deterioration of concrete is an important durability issue for concrete structures exposed to high humidity, frost and deicers (exposure classes XF1-4 in EN206). Today when the variety of binder compositions is rapidly increasing it is more important than ever to understand the mechanism behind the deterioration to define a reliable test method to obtain frost durable structures.
