CONCRETE CURING TECHNOLOGY

The development of concrete curing technology as part of the SHRP project C-201, Microstructure of Concrete, is discussed as a means of quality assurance in the processing of concrete. The need for this kind of monitoring stems from problems with the high early temperature rise in modern concrete during curing. Reference is made to the Arrhenius' based maturity function for calculations of the rate of hydration of cement in concrete under given conditions. An example is presented of calculations to serve as guidance for when the curing technology system ought to be applied in the construction of highway pavements.
