The scaling of concrete caused by the combined effects of frost and deicing salt is one of the principle causes of damage to transportation infrastructure in cold-climate regions. In this study, to evaluate the factors affecting scaling resistance of concrete, the relationship between the properties of concrete, such as the mechanical properties and pore structure, and scaling resistance was examined experimentally. The test results showed that the scaling resistance was strongly dependent on the absorption properties of concrete, but not on the compressive strength. Furthermore, it is believed that both the spacing factor and specific surface of the air voids was not a good parameter for evaluating the scaling resistance of concrete. SGC concrete was less durable than OPC and SFC concrete with respect to the scaling resistance in the scope of the present study.
