The influence of curing methods on durability parameters

Precast concrete production and quality control

The influence of various curing methods, suitable for precast concrete production, on compressive strength and durability indicators was investigated, using concretes with different binder types and different water/binder ratios. For specimens exposed to dry ambient conditions, initial moist curing for 6 days, followed by unprotected exposure, presented the most effective method, followed by initial sealing with a plastic sheet. For specimens exposed to moist ambient conditions, conventional curing efforts were found to be ineffective for improving concrete properties, compared to unprotected reference specimens.
