Curing is the maintaining of a satisfactory moisture content and temperature in concrete during its early stages so that desited properties may develop. Basic principles of curing are stated; commonly accepted methods procedures, and materials are described . Requirements are given for curing pavements and other slabs on ground; for structures and buildings; and for mass concrete For each of these categories, methods, materials time, and temperature of curing are stated Curing requirementsfor precast products, shotcrete, preplaced-aggregate concrete, refractory concrete, plaster, and other applications are given.

Keywords: bridges (structures); builings cement-base paints; cold-weather construction; concrete construction; concrete pavements; concretes; curing;curing compounds; curing films and sheets; hot-weather construction; insulating concrete; insulation; mass concrete; moist curing; plaster; precast concrete; refractory concretes; reinforced concrete; sealers; shells (stuctural forms); shotcrete; slab-on-ground construction; slipform construction; standards; steam curing; stucco.
