Title: Winter Concreting Trends in Europe

Abstract:Postwar labor and economic problems in Europe have led to governmental encouragement of winter construction. This has resulted in extensive, state-supported research on winter concreting, the progress of which is largely reflected in the papers presented by European authors at the RILEM Symposium on Winter Concreting in Copenhagen, February, 1956. The primary consideration has been the reduction in costs of winter protection of green concrete concurrent with the achievement of better assurance of safety. Research has been directed toward methods of quantitative predic-tion of frost resistance and of minimum protection requirements. Methods of increasing frost resistance of green concrete have received attention. Practical developments involve the refinement of existing methods of safe winter concreting, particularly the choice of building types most suitable for winter construction and the utilization of locally available materials.
