Title: Electron Evaluation of Concrete Cured at Elevated Temperatures
Author(s): B. A. Clark, E. A. Draper, R. J. Lee, J. Skalny, M. Ben-Bassat, and A. Bentur
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 41-60
Keywords: cracking (fracturing); curing; durability; microstructure; porosity; strength; temperature; water-cement ratio; Materials Research
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.
