Formulated by either using an air-entrained cement or adding an air-entrained agent, this type of concrete forms microscopic air bubbles throughout the concrete during the mixing process.
used experimental measurements and poroelastic approaches to assess the freeze-thaw behavior of air-entrained cement pastes saturated with 10 wt.% NaCl solutions and found that air-void entrainment tended to decrease the thermal contraction but increase the hydraulic expansion, ice nucleation expansion, and residual expansion [5].
