Abstract: Deteriorated and nondeteriorated concrete blC'cks were tester to determine the mechanism that caused some, of the blocks to have exterior face deterioration. Freezing and thawing tests were performed on protectec1 and unprotected specimens at various moisture conditions. Petrographic examinations were performed to determine the quality of aggregate and paste. Frost action, at a moisture content above a critical level, was found to be the mechanism responsible for the deterioration.
