Wang, H.; He, S., and Fei, C., 2018. Deterioration performance of damaged concrete beams under freezing-thawing cycle and chloride environment in coastal cities. In: Liu, Z.L. and Mi, C. (eds.), Advances in Sustainable Port and Ocean Engineering. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 83, pp. 295–299. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.

The experiments of the reinforced concrete beams with different cracking damage under the freezing-thawing cycles and chloride ingress were carried out to analyze the physical and mechanical changes according to the experimental results. The results show that the apparent appearance and mass of beams with different damage were not obvious, but the ultimate carrying capacity of the beams decreases obviously with the increase of freezing thawing cycles, and the more damage was, the lower the ultimate carrying capacity in beams was obvious in 100 cycles.
