Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products): 91.100.30
significance And Use:

5.1 By increasing the concrete temperature, the rate of hydration increases and a larger portion of the later-age properties of the concrete can be attained during the short curing period compared... View More

scope:

1.1 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-Warm Water Method and B-Autogenous Curing Method.

1.2 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.

1.3 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)
