Direct Electric Curing of Concrete: Basic Design

Spiral bound
The study of cements, aggregates and the other components of concrete, has developed and grown over the years to the point where it has become a science. However, one process remains difficult to define and quantify - and that is curing. Natural curing was common practice but the demands of modern industry led to accelerated curing, whether through the use of chemical or the application of vacuum or heat. This specialist review provides a detailed treatment of the subject, clarifying and quantifying aspects of the subject pertinent to the curing of concrete. The author of this book discusses the underlying basic principles before examining the design procedure, which is complemented with worked examples. All facets of the process are considered, from the electrical installation and calculation of power required, to the economic factors and implementation of a scheme.
