A discussion of Canadian research into effects of below normal and above normal temperatures on properties of concrete. The raction of temperature and age on thermal expansion and modulus of elasticity of concrete; vacuum processing; pulse velocity; field curing and protection are covered. Also included are effects of heat applied during curing and after placement, effects of steam injection and review of research by National Research Council of Canada on fire endurance of concrete masonry walls.
