THE USE OF PAPER FOR CURING CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

NEW DATA ON THE USE OF PAPER FOR CURING CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IS PRESENTED AND BOTH OLD AND NEW DATA ARE INTERPRETED. STRENGTH TESTS INDICATED A FAVORABLE COMPARISON BETWEEN PAPER CURING METHODS USED AND STANDARD WET-BURLAP-MOIST- EARTH CONTROL. PAPER CURED SPECIMENS GAVE AVERAGE MODULI OF RUPTURE VARYING FROM 97 TO 102 PERCENT FOR ONE PROJECT, 92 TO 105 PERCENT FOR ANOTHER PROJECT, OF THOSE OBTAINED FOR THE STANDARD EARTH CURED SPECIMENS. THE EFFECTS OF THE CURING UPON CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS APPEARANCE, PERMEABILITY AND DURABILITY ARE DISCUSSED. APPARENTLY, THE SLIGHTLY GREATER EARLY VOLUME CHANGES OF PAPER CURED CONCRETE ARE INSUFFICIENT TO CAUSE ANY MORE TRANSVERSE CRACKING THAN WILL BE OBTAINED FOR THE WET CURING METHODS. INDICATIONS ARE THAT SUITABLY PREPARED PAPERS MAY BE USED SATISFACTORILY AS CURING AGENTS FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENT SLABS.
