SP-259CD The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 231, Properties of Concrete at Early Ages, has sponsored a full-day technical session on the Transition from Fluid to Solid: Re-examining the Behavior of Concrete at Early Ages at the ACI Spring Convention, San Antonio, Texas, March 15-19, 2009. This special publication contains the twelve papers presented at this session. The subject matter of these papers includes: (1) the development of concrete properties and microstructure at early ages, (2) test methods for assessing early-age volume change and cracking potential, (3) construction operations timing, (4) computer simulations of early-age behavior, and (5) mechanisms that end the concrete dormant period.
