EFFECTS OF CURING AND MOISTURE DISTRIBUTION ON MEASURED STRENGTH OF CONCRETE

FLEXURAL STRENGTH TESTS ARE BEING USED TO AN INCREASING EXTENT AS A BASIS FOR SPECIFYING CONCRETE QUALITY AND ACCEPTABILITY. CURING IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR THROUGH ITS INFLUENCE ON STRESSES INDUCED WITHIN THE SPECIMEN BY NON-UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF MOISTURE. TEST SERIES WERE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE FOLLOWING RELATIONSHIPS: (1) EFFECT OF DRYING ON MEASURED FLEXURAL STRENGTH OF MOIST CURED CONCRETE; (2) EFFECT OF RESATURATION ON MEASURED FLEXURAL STRENGTH OF DRY CONCRETE; (3) AGE-STRENGTH RELATIONSHIPS FOR DIFFERENT CURING CONDITIONS.
