Title: Effect of Curing Temperature and Humidity on Strength of Concrete Containing Blast-Furnace Slag Admixture
Author(s): Taketo Uomoto and Kazusuke Kobayashi
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1345-1360
Keywords: admixtures; age-strength relation; blast furnace slag; compressive strength; concretes; curing; humidity; slags; temperature; Materials Research
Abstract:The compressive strength of blast furnace slag concrete containing slag/(cement + slag) ratios of 0, 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 was followed by changing the curing conditions. The specimens were cured in air or water at 10, 20, or 40 C, and the strength development after 1, 4, 8, 13, and 26 weeks was determined. Equations were developed for strength based on maturity, curing, method, age of concrete, and amount of slag.
