For this, expendable thermis- weight concrete loses heat more slowly than freshly tors or thermocouples cast in the concrete may be used. It should be Membrane-Forming Compounds determined whether the admixture under consideration for Curing Concrete contains chloride.

In some cases, it may only be necessary to cover 6.

In such a case, thawing must kg be done as far in advance of batching as is possible to achieve substantial equilibrium in both moisture con- Eq. For small jobs, aggregates may be crete temperature within 10 F 5 C of the required thawed by acu them carefully over culvert pipes in temperature.

Concrete temperatures must be monitored so that the recommended values are not exceeded. Insulating blankets are used to direct heat directly into the concrete. 306rr, tough, moistureproof cover material because wetting for all practical purposes, the effects of wind speed may will impair its insulating value.

Otherwise, steel when galvanizing is used on permanent forms for the use of curing compounds or an impervious cover is roof decks or embedded parts. If the coarse aggregate is dry 3.

Guides to temperature uniformity, refined cold-weather concreting definitions and more clearly defined approaches to temperature protection are but a few of the updates found in the revised spec.
