Description: Technical report
Purpose: The purpose of this, investigation has been to study methods and perform laboratory tests to develop treatments to prevent frost action in base materials susceptible to frost action. This report presents (a.) a summary of previous' investigations performed by others, to study the effect of admixtures on frost action, in the form of excerpts from the; conclusions sustained by the reports of these investigations, (b.) The results of laboratory tests performed to determine the suitability of various admixtures and combinations of admixtures to prevent frost-action in materials susceptible to frost action, and (c.) the results of laboratory tests to determine whether leaching of salts could be retarded or prevented by the addition of bituminous materials. Representative data are presented herein. A complete record of test data is on file at the Frost Effects Laboratory. No field tests were performed during this investigation.
