2011-7-1  The blended concrete paste was prepared using the water–binder ratio of 0.5 wt.% of blended cement. The fresh concrete pastes were first cured at 100% relative humidity for 24 h and then cured in water for 28 days. The hardened concrete was thermally treated at 100, 200, 400, 600 and 800 °C for 2 h. The compressive strength, indirect tensile ...

2015-2-1  Concrete that gains initial compressive strength of 3.5 MPa without freezing can withstand a cycle of freezing and thawing . At temperatures below −5 °C, 92% of the water in fresh concrete turns into ice. Consequently, strength development essentially stops, but there is little water to react with the cement.
