This ACI Standard establishes standard methods of cold-weather oncreting for thin sections and mass concrete. Heating of materials, accelerators and anti-freezes, curing and temperature records during curing, and subgrade (or base) preparation, protective coverings during curing, and form removal are discussed for both types of job, and preferred methods are indicated. An appendix entry outlines objectives of the special winter methods with background material which indicates the "wh" of some of the recommended pratices. Charts in the appendix indicate effect of curing temperature on concrete strength, and a list of 135 selected references to periodical liturature on winter concreting methods is included.
