Rapid Set® Concrete Mix — DATASHEET Very Fast-Setting Concrete PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: When mixed with water CONCRETE MIX produces a workable, high quality concrete material that is ideal where fast strength gain, high durability and low shrinkage are desired. Apply CONCRETE MIX in thicknesses from 2-in to in. Durable in wet environments. Factors Affecting Strength of Concrete Concrete strength is affected by many factors, such as quality of raw materials, water/cement ratio, coarse/fine aggregate ratio, age of concrete, compaction of concrete, temperature, relative humidity and curing of concrete. Quality of Raw Materials Cement: Provided the cement conforms with the appropriate standard and it has .
Effect of fly ash and silica fume on compressive strength of self-compacting concrete under different curing conditions Article (PDF Available) in Ain Shams Engineering Journal 2(2) . The sulfate in the portland cement is an internal source, and is activated when the internal temperature of the curing concrete reaches degrees fahrenheit, a condition which can and should be avoided. Sulfates react in the alkaline environment of the concrete paste and create highly expansive crystals called Ettringites.
Figure explains better! The period of curing of concrete is most important as it is very essential for keeping the hydration process of cement until concrete attains the maximum compressive strength, which increases but slowly after 28 days from i. This paper discusses the properties of RCA, the effects of RCA use on concrete material properties, and the large scale impact of RCA on structural members. The review study yielded the following findings in regards to concrete material properties: (1) replacing NA in concrete with RCA decreases the compressive strength, but yields comparable splitting tensile strength.

That is moist cured. Curing of the concrete is also governed by the moist-curing period, longer the moist-curing period higher the strength of the concrete assuming that the hydration of the cement particles will go on. American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee recommends a minimum curing period corresponding to concrete attaining 70% of File Size: KB.

In field conditions, heat and wind can dry out the moisture from the placed mixture. 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. An illustration of an open book.

CHAPTER 12 Curing Concrete Fig. Curing should begin as soon as the concrete stiffens enough to prevent marring or erosion of the sur-face. The sensor is fully embedded in the concrete and secured on the rebar within the formwork. SmartRock continuously monitors the effect of ambient temperatures and the external environment on your in-situ concrete, making it easier to control concrete curing and ensure optimal conditions for compressive strength gain.
Concrete placed & cured at a moderate temperature (15–25°C) will gain higher strength & durability than 35°C concrete. Curing concrete at high temperature accelerates curing and strength achievement, but provide lower maximum concrete strength. ACI specify limits for concrete temperature in cold weather conditions.
With the maximum particle size limited to mm, the compressive strength reaches MPa by 28 days under room temperature curing. Curing at 80–90 °C will further increase the strength to MPa. If pressure is applied before and during setting, and curing is carried out at °C, strength as high as MPa can be attained.
While concrete may be one of the strongest building materials in the history of man, it is still susceptible to damage when moisture levels are not optimal.

In cold weather, the temperature of the concrete can be controlled by providing appropriate curing conditions to maintain insulation and strength gain, such as the use of heating systems.
High curing temperatures can also. Moisture can cause a wide variety of issues for many materials, and concrete is no exception. Construction humidity control is crucial to ensuring stable, strong concrete.
Emergency: 1. strength. Longer curing will give more durable concrete. See CHAPTER 10 Curing Concrete WEATHER Warmer weather will cause concrete to have a higher early strength. See CHAPTER 12 Hot and Cold Weather Concreting TYPE OF CEMENT Different types of cement will affect concrete properties: ie how quickly or slowly concrete gains strength.
• The use of non-air-entrained concrete or too little entrained air. • Application of excessive amounts of calcium or sodium chloride deicing salts on concrete with inadequate strength, air entrainment, or curing.
• Any finishing operation while bleed water is on the surface. Consequently, overworking the surface will result. Moist-curing concrete for 20 days more than doubles its strength compared to four days of moist-curing, which is considered a minimum.
Although the greatest gain is. When concrete is submitted to freezing and thawing cycles, the spacing factor of the bubble network should be a concern. Of course, when adding some air to an ordinary concrete, its compressive strength decreases, as does the amount of mixing water due to the lubrication action of the bubbles.

Durability is defined as the capability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties.
It normally refers to the duration or life span of trouble-free performance. Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and properties desired. The factors affecting the strength of concrete are mentioned below.
These factors can be either dependent or independent of each other when comes to the concrete strength. Most of the factors are interrelated in certain means. The primary factor that has a higher influence on the strength of the concrete is the mix design factors. Each of them is. Properly curing concrete improves strength, durability, water tightness, and wear resistance.
When most people think of curing, they think only of maintaining moisture on the surface of the concrete. But curing is more than that-it is giving the concrete what it needs to gain strength properly.
