CONCRETE PRODUCTION AND PLACEMENT IN HOT HUMID CLIMATES
Hot, humid climates are characterized by high ambient temperatures and relative humidities. In these climates there is little ambient temperature variation and relatively sustained high relative humidity, conditions that are favorable for concrete, but a high ambient temperature requires cautious attention in the mix design, placing and curing of concrete. Based on their experience in Puerto Rico, the authors provide guidelines for producing concrete in such climates. Four case histories are cited.
