Title: Influence of Temperature on the Strength of Concrete
Author(s): A.B. McDaniel
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 241-280
Abstract:Concrete as a structural material is taking a foremost place in the field of construction, and has shown its adaptability to a wide range of uses and its reliability under vaious conditions of loading, climate, etc. The stress of competition of work regardless of climatic conditions or the season of the year. Until recent years it was the general practice to discontinue concrete work during cold weather. It is the purpose of this paper to present a brief statement of the results of an investigation which the writer has made during the past two years at the University of Illinois and also of some tests made about four years aog during the construction of some buildings in Chicago. These tests were not sufficiently comprehensive to give conclusive results, but it is belived that they may furnish some suggestive information as to the strength of concrete at early ages under different temperature conditions.
