RESULTS FOR CURING OF CONCRETE

Definition: action taken to maintain moisture and temperature conditions in a freshly placed cementitious mixture to allow hydraulic cement hydration and (if applicable) pozzolanic reactions to occur so that the potential properties of the mixture may develop.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Concrete sets and hardens as a result of a chemical reaction between cementitious materials and water. This process is called hydration. Curing is the process of maintaining satisfactory temperature and moisture conditions in concrete long enough for hydration to develop the desired concrete properties. The potential strength and durability of concrete will be fully developed only if concrete is properly cured.
