Abstract

SCOPE

This paper describes a laboratory procedure for determining the coefficient of thermal expansion of concrete repair mortars. The specimens are exposed to temperatures ranging from +5 ºC to +60 ºC. For each change of temperature, the longitudinal expansion is recorded.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The method can be used to evaluate different concrete repair materials.
