Abstract

The research carried out in this study presents the effectiveness of using sodium acetate as a protective material for concrete pavement. A newly developed freeze-thaw method that depends on the alteration of temperature and humidity is introduced in this research to investigate the efficacy of integrating sodium acetate with concrete with different water to cement ratios (w/c). Results from the introduced freeze-thaw method were compared with the outcomes of a standard freeze-thaw testing method. The distressed concrete was tested for water absorption and compressive strength after finishing six months of freeze-thaw testing. Additionally, the morphology of sodium acetate and its interaction with concrete were investigated by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). Results demonstrated the effectiveness of sodium acetate in protecting concrete.
