New ACI guide to external concrete curing

The American Concrete Institute has a new publication for concrete industry professionals— ACI 308R-16 Guide to External Curing of Concrete.

UntitledThis guide reviews and describes practices, procedures, materials, and monitoring methods for the external curing of concrete and provides guidance for specifying curing procedures.

Current curing techniques are presented and commonly accepted methods, procedures, and materials are described. Methods are given for curing structures and buildings, pavements and other slabs-on-ground, and for mass concrete. Curing methods for several specific categories of cement-based products are discussed in this document.

New research and methods of curing are presented, and the guide covers definitions; curing methods and materials; curing for different types of construction; and monitoring curing and curing effectiveness. Topics such as internal curing, curing at elevated temperatures, sustainability, curing of moisture-sensitive flooring, sensors for mass concrete curing, and new curing monitoring techniques have been added or enhanced in this document.

“ACI’s goal of proactively gathering and sharing information on transformational ideas, practices, and techniques is met through its technical documents,” said Michael Tholen, ACI managing director, engineering and professional development.

“The new ACI 308R-16 Guide to External Curing of Concrete, together with ACI 308.1-11 Specification for Curing Concrete, provides the most up-to-date information needed for the concrete industry professional.”
