Title: Early-Age Stress Development of Internally Cured Concrete
Author(s): Benjamin E. Byard
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Keywords: Internally cured concrete, mixture proportioning, internal curing, hydration
Abstract:In recent years, significant advancements have been made to use internal curing not only to mitigate autogenous shrinkage but also to enhance the in-place concrete performance. The objectives of this session are to assess the economics, performance, and sustainability of internal curing in various concrete applications. The following topics will be covered: mixture proportioning, internal curing methods, hydration impacts, volume change effects, mechanical properties, durability aspects, life-cycle cost analysis, impact on sustainability, and case studies that document the use of internal curing.
