Abstract

An examination including an evaluation of mechanical properties of concrete that had suffered combined deterioration from fatigue and frost damage was done using cylindrical specimens. The order of deterioration and degree of deterioration of the specimens were used as variables. The examination clarified that certain mechanical properties of concrete that had undergone combined deterioration were able to be evaluated by measuring the propagation speed of ultrasonic waves. The decrease in the elastic modulus and the ultrasonic velocity that accompanies the increase in the number of freeze-thaw cycles was smaller in the specimens that experienced fatigue first and then frost damage than in the specimens that experienced frost damage only. The values for mechanical properties (e.g., compressive strength, elastic modulus, and shrinkage strain) of the specimen that experienced frost damage first and then fatigue had already greatly decreased after the application of freeze- thaw cycles. Therefore, the decrease in the mechanical properties was small even with increases in the number of loading cycles. The decrease in the fatigue life of the specimen in the fatigue test was proportional to the deterioration from the preceding frost damage.
