Abstract:
Portland blast-furnance slag cement and portland pozzolan cement tend to harden and gain strength more slowly than typical Type I portland cements, upon which the provisions of this Code are based. The provision regarding damp curing is to avoid the risk of low strength and poor durability which might exist if concrete made with these cements were allowed to dry too soon after placing. This article includes: Metal reinforcement.
