EFFECT OF METHOD OF CURING ON INTERNAL TEMPERATURES OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IN NORTH CAROLINA-WITH DISCUSSION

THE RELATIVE MERITS ARE EVALUATED OF FOUR CURING METHODS NOT INVOLVING THE USE OF APPLIED WATER: (A) WHITE PIGMENTED LIQUID MEMBRANE, (B) CLEAR LIQUID MEMBRANE WITH FUGITIVE RED DYE, (C) TAN WATERPROOF PAPER, AND (D) WHITE WATERPROOF PAPER. MOISTURE RETENTION WAS NOT MEASURED. VARIATIONS IN TEMPERATURE AT THREE DEPTHS IN THE PAVEMENT SLAB UNDER THE CURING MEDIA WERE RECORDED FROM THE TIME OF PLACEMENT UNTIL 72 HOURS. COMPRESSION STRENGTHS OF CONCRETE CORES TAKEN FROM THE TEST SECTIONS WERE DETERMINED AT APPROXIMATELY 12 MONTHS AND 18 MONTHS. FROM THE DATA PRESENTED IN THIS REPORT AND UNDER THE CONDITIONS INVESTIGATED, THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN: CONSIDERING THE TEMPERATURE VARIABLES, LOWEST TEMPERATURES ARE OBTAINED WITH WHITE WATERPROOF PAPER, FOLLOWED IN ORDER BY, WHITE PIGMENTED LIQUID MEMBRANE, TAN WATERPROOF PAPER, AND CLEAR LIQUID MEMBRANE WITH FUGITIVE RED DYE. /AUTHOR/
