DRYING OF CONCRETE. INFLUENCE OF THE COMPOSITION

UTTORKNING AV BETONG. INVERKAN AV SAMMANSATTNINGEN

To determine the material characteristics important for the drying of concrete an extensive investigation was made where the influence of the composition of the concrete was studied. The result is that, in particular the w/c ratio, the natural percentage of air and the increase of air percentage, if any, are of very great importance. The result also shows that the drying time can be reduced by one half by increasing the percentage of air at a constant w/c ratio. /TRRL/
