Curing Concrete – Normal, Hot and Cold Weather

The accompanying figure shows how concrete strength varies with curing conditions. Concrete that is allowed to dry in air will gain only 50% of the strength of continuously moist-cured concrete. Lack of water also causes the concrete to shrink, which leads to tensile stresses within the concrete.

Accelerated Curing of Concrete Cubes Using Warm Water

The minimum acceptable strength of concrete in construction works is determined at its 28 day-compressive strength. To find this compressive strength, usually 28 days of moist curing is required. This 28 days waiting period is too lengthy for an ongoing project that requires a certain strength to wait before ascertaining the strength.
