JOB CONDITIONS AFFECT CRACKING AND STRENGTH OF CONCRETE IN-PLACE

This report is the result of a joint industry study of construction techniques and their influence on cracking of concrete in-place and its effect on strength development. The investigation used large size slabs to determine how various job conditions, porosity of the subgrade, concrete mixes, and surface treatments (curing) influence cracking and in-place concrete strength. Southern California materials were used in this project and the slabs were cast under hot and windy conditions. Such conditions and similar materials are relatively common-place is slab-on-grade construction in many parts of the United States and elsewhere.
