Abstract: We developed a theory for freezing of electrolyte in porous media, elaborating the role of ions and nano-fluidic trapping mechanisms. Several curious facts about cement/concrete freeze-thaw damage are qualitatively explained by the theory, while none of the previous models can resolve all of them. I will discuss implications/potentials of this theory in ASR modeling.
