Abstract

The article presents part of a larger research project on the effect of alternating long term freezing and thawing cycles on the micro and macro scale properties of cementitious mortars containing superabsorbent polymers (SAP). This study analyses a relationship between the alterations of cement paste morphology caused by the omnidirectional exposure to freeze/thaw cycles in presence of NaCl ions. The effect of a number of alternating freezing and thawing cycles on the performance of mature mortars is assessed.
