Abstract: The study presents the results of ceramsite concrete studies with respect to sharply continental climate of the North. At that the particular importance for concrete durability prediction is the evaluation of frost resistance within particular operation conditions. To evaluate the thermal strains, the solidity and frost resistance at sign variable and subzero temperatures, the method of dilatometric studies is used. It is determined that the improved frost resistance of fused ceramsite concrete in harsh environments contributes to the selection of concrete components with similar coefficient values of linear thermal expansion and the introduction of complex supplement.
