Abstract:
This recommended practice provides information useful in minimizing detrimental effects of hot weather on concrete. Means are described for reducing concrete temperature by proper attention to ingredients; methods of production and delivery; and care in placement, protection, and curing. Information is given on the use of admixtures to reduce mixing water require-ments and to retard setting. Emphasis is given to the importance of meticulous attention to the use of standard procedures in testing concrete made in hot weather.
