Abstract:
It was considered that the effect of surrounding temperature on concrete during the normal curing period should be further stressed, to the end that full advantage might be taken of favorable conditions and precautions taken against unfavorable conditions. The significance of W/C versus curing is touched on. The time required for the concrete to attain a compressive strength of 1500 psi is brought out. It was found that each degree F change in curing temperature caused a concomitant change i n compressive strength of + 32 p s i .
