Abstract:
Supplements an earlier paper by the same authors and presents effect of moist curing subsequent to exposure to low temperatures on concrete strength. Temperature of making and curing and duration of subsequent moist curing were varied, Where development of normal strength had been retarded by exposure to low temperatures, practically the full potential strength of the concrete was obtained by storage in warm water for a sufficient period. Concrete stored in water at a given low temperature developed a much higher proportion of its potential strength than concrete stored for the same period and temperature in dry air.
