Title: Improving Performance of Concrete with Internal Curing (Overview)
Publication: Web Session (Outdated)
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Internal curing is a method of curing the concrete from the inside by “hiding” water in the lightweight aggregates. The benefits of internal curing include a well distributed network of water to cure as needed throughout the mixture. A long term benefit is the potential extension of the concrete’s service life. Mixture proportioning for concrete designed with internal curing is as simple as replacing a portion of the sand with prewetted, fine lightweight aggregate.
Part 1 includes presentations covering “Overview – Improving the Performance of Concrete with Internal Curing,” and “Concept, Proportioning, and Aggregate.”
