INFLUENCE OF VARIOUS CURING METHODS ON STRENGTH AND ABRASIVE WEAR RESISTANCE OF A PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE

METHODS OF CONCRETE CURING USING MATERIALS OTHER THAN BURLAP ARE INVESTIGATED DUE TO THE BURLAP SHORTAGE CREATED BY THE WAR. SEVERAL LIQUID CURING COMPOUNDS WERE TESTED. A SURFACE APPLICATION OF CALCIUM CHLORIDE WAS MADE, AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE USED AS AN ADMIXTURE IN THE CONCRETE. IN TESTS OF THE TOP (CURED) SURFACE OF THE SPECIMENS GOOD WEAR RESISTANCE RESULTED ON ALL SPECIMENS TREATED WITH CALCIUM CHLORIDE. SPECIMENS WITH 3 SURFACE COATINGS SHOWED RELATIVELY LOWER RESISTANCE TO ABSTRASION AND A SIGNIFICANT VARIATION BETWEEN DIFFERENT COATINGS. /AUTHOR/
