Improving the behavior of concrete exposed to fire by using an air entraining agent (AEA): Assessment of spalling
1 CETU/Ministry of Ecology, Bron, France
2 CERIB : Epernon, France
Several concrete mixes have been designed to evaluate the influence of an air entraining agent (AEA) on spalling. Tests have been performed under the ISO curve (occasionally under the HCinc curve) on specimens of various sizes and shapes to assess spalling. Results were somehow erratic on the smallest specimens whereas the beneficial effect of the air-bubble network could be emphasized on slabs.
