Abstract:Describes an electrical method of heating concrete in cold weather which has been used in about 80 structures in northern Japan. The structures ranged from simple piers for wooden buildings to abutments and piers 82 ft high. The system, employing a network of electrodes, is applicable to plain or reinforced concrete.
