Consideration of the Effect of Miscellaneous Factors on Frost Resistance of High Strength Concrete by Using the Factorial Design Method Kwon Young-Jin;
Factorial design method is applied to investigate the effects of various factors simultaneously rather than to conduct a series of single-factor experiment. As the results, frost resistance of the concrete specimens, in both W/C ratio of 0.28 and 0.35, was highly affected by the type of coarse aggregate that is, andesite produced more durable concrete than the limestone. Durability factor of the specimens, with W/C ratio of 0.28, which were demolded after I day and transferred to the curing room was higher than those demolded after 2 days. This stated the efficiency of the high early curing in high strength concrete.
