Standard Practice for Accelerated Curing of Concrete Cylinders
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
|ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products):||91.100.30|
This practice covers two procedures for making and curing cylindrical specimens of concrete under conditions that increase the rate of hydration at early ages. The procedures are: A-WarmWater Method and B-Autogenous Curing Method.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. (Warning-Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.2)
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
