Abstract:
Laboratory concrete made under different curing conditions was evaluated using electron-optical techniques. Differences in microstructure and strength were observed in relationship to water-cement ratio, wet/dry curing, temperature of curing, presence of supplementary materials, and mode of preheating. This presentation highlights the partial results of the microstructural evaluation.
