LOW TEMPERATURE CURING OF PRECAST PRESTRESSED CONCRETE PRODUCTS

Traditionally, low pressure steam has been used to cure plant produced precast prestressed concrete products. Nevertheless, there are some inherent disadvantages associated with this curing method. In this article the author proposes a new curing method for precast products using a low temperature. The method has been applied in New Zealand and preliminary results show that substantial savings in plant operations can be attained without any appreciable loss in concrete strength. /Author/
