The effect of thermal cycling (freezing and thawing) on the texture and strength of two types of concrete is studied: 1. Concrete used for a containment structure at NPP Temelín (Czech Republic) - so-called TEMELÍN concrete.2. Highly resistant PENLY concrete, which was used as a standard because of its high quality, proved by the research carried out in a European Commission project. The results for the two samples of concrete are compared.
