The surface appearance of concrete containing a midrange water reducer could be changed, thereby requiring a changeof the timing of finishing operations.

These data, together with projected or actual concrete temperatures, enable supervisory personnel through reference to Fig. Wetting of aggregates, however, tends to cause variations in surface moisture and thereby complicates slump control. Theimproved handling characteristics of flowing concrete permit more rapid placement and consolidation, and the period between mixing and initial finishing can therefore be reduced. Trial batches of concrete for the job should be made at the limiting temperature selected, or at the expected job site high temperature, rather than the68 to 86 F 20 to 30 C range given in ASTMC The forms should be loosened as soon as this can be done without damage to the concrete, and provisions made for the curing water torun down inside them.

A morepracticalmethod of moist-curing is that of covering the prewetted concrete with impervious sheeting or application of absorptive mats orfabrickept continuously wetwith a soakerhoseor similar means.

Strength, impermeability, dimensional stability, and resistance ack the concrete to weathering, wear, and chemical attack all depend on the following factors: Excessive fogapplication which would wash the fresh concrete surface or cause surplus water to cling to reinforcement or stand on the concrete surface during floating and troweling must beavoided.

If possible, the work should be kept in a uniformly moderate temperature condition to allow theconcrete to develop its full strength potential.

By using some effective retarding admixtures at appropriate dosages, preferably in combination with cementitious material of slow-setting characteristics, concrete canbemaintained in a placeable’ condition for extended periods even in hot weather see Section 2.

The rate of bleeding, other the hand, on depends on concrete mixture ingredients depth and proportions, the on of member the being cast, and on the type of consolidation and finishing. High initial curing temperatures are detrimental totheultimatestrengthto a greater degree than high placing temperatures Bloem ; Barnes et al ; Gaynor et al Early in the bleeding process, however, and at rates of evaporation less than or equal to 0.

Compared with concrete without admixture, a concrete mixture that uses a water-reducing and retarding admixture may have a higher rate of slump loss. The use of midrange water reducers is particularly beneficial in cases where aggregate properties contribute to poor workability or finishing difficulties.

Additional admixtures are not required to restart hydration. Each slump loss and invite the addition of water to operation in finishing should be carried out promptly when the concrete isready for it.

Specimens may be immersed immediately in saturated limewater after molding. Because surface drying is initiated when evaporation rate exrate, ceeds bleeding of plastic-shrinkage 8 whenever cracking therefore increases 1E conditions increase evaporation, or when the concrete has a For mixtures incorreduced bleeding rate.

The blending of threeor more aggregate sizes may reduce the mixing waterrequirements and improve workability at a given slump Shilstone, Sr.

Equipment should also be available at the site for measuring the evaporation rate in accordance with Section 5. The method is therefore the most useful in estimating the acj potentialof the ambient conditions, and not as an estimator of the actual rate of water loss from the concrete.

For most concrete, the maximum temperature reduction with is approximately ice 20 F 1 1 C. Moore Dan Ravina John M. It gathers and distributes information on the improvement of design, construction, and maintenance of concrete products and structures.

The presence of a desirable air-void system is needed if the concrete is going to be exposed to freezing cycles. These concrete mixtures should be provided thermal protection to ensure gradual cooling at a rate thatwillnot cause themto crack; see Section 4. This limit acu be waived for conditions that require further thorough mixing of the concrete: Apartfrom the unsightliness of poorly consolidated concrete, insufficient compaction in the form may seriously impair the durability and structural performance reinforced concrete.

When the concrete surface is not covered with bleed water, the nomograph and its underlying mathematical expression tends to overestimate the actual rate of water loss from theconcrete surface by as much as a factor of 2 or more Al-Fadhala Therefore, proper fabrication, curing, and testing of the test specimens during hot weather is critical, and steps should be taken to ensure 30r the specified procedures are followed.

The concrete that sets slowest at F 38 C was the fastest-setting cement when tested 30r5 50 F 10 C. These practices include selecting materials and proportions, precooling ingredients, and batching.

There is potential for false setting problems causing the concrete to stiffen rapidly or set in the drum, or for flattening of the mixer rollers. The general influence of the temperature of concrete ingredients on concrete temperature is calculated from the equations in Appendix A, and shown in Fig.

Water can be cooled to low as 33 F as I20 80 9 40. Slump can easily change due to minor changes in materials and concrete characteristics. The combined thermal and drying shrinkage can lead to morecracking than observed for the same concrete placed under milder conditions.

The probability for plastic-shrinkage cracks to occurmay be increased if the setting time of the concrete is delayed due to the use of slow-setting cement, an excessive dosage of retarding admixture, fly ash as a cement replacement, or cooled concrete.

Rapid slump loss in hot weather often increases the demand for water, increasing total water content, and therefore, increasing the potential for subsequent drying shrinkage. In general, lowering the temperature of the batch water by 3.

Even though water is usedin smaller quantities than the other ingredients, cooled water will reduce the concrete placing temperature, but usually by not more thanapproximately 8 F 4. Construction specifications for the State of New York and the City of Cincinnati are intermediate evaporation rates of O.
