Title: Low Temperature Effects on Hardened Air-Entrained Concrete
Author(s): K.W. Nasser, G.A. Evans
Publication: Special Publication

Keywords: air entrained concretes; cold weather construction; compressive strength; concretes; curing; impact strength; low temperature tests; moisture content; splitting tensile strength; strains
Abstract:A study was conducted on the influence of low temperature on the properties of hardened air-entrained concrete which was subjected to four different curing conditions. One of the curing conditions was related to the prevalent winter curing practice in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. The tests consisted of compression, splitting tension, impact and elastic strains. In total, over four hundred specimens were tested.
