Abstract:To provide data to assess the advisablity of continuing membrane curing of concrete pavements as an alternate method, laboratory and field tests were made to compare the effect of storage conditions on the physical properties of concrete, warping, temperature control, and strength and abrasion resistance of concrete cured with membranes and with wet burlap. A survey of pavements cured with clear membranes in spring and summer showed that cracking, when occurred at all, was found predominatly in pavements laid in the morning hours. Comparing white-pigmented membranes with the usual wet-curing conditions in the field it was found to be effcient, practicable and about as half as expensive as wet curing under the same conditions.
