Freeze and thaw test were conducted on 48 specimens representing strength levels of 5000 and 3000 psi; some of beams with 5000 psi strength were post-tensioned throughout test; significant improvement in durability was found to result from post-tensioning; post-tensioned concrete specimens made of rich mix showed better durability than unstressed concrete made of same mix.
