Influence of Field-Curing Conditions on Strength of Concrete Test Specimens

This study by the Illinois Department of Transportation is a progressive step forward and has a prescribed objective for implementable cost-effective and reliable field-curing method for concrete specimens. The goal of this project is to develop specifications or guidelines for field-curing test specimens that more accurately represent the strength of an in-place concrete item. A reliable field-curing method is needed to determine if a concrete structure may be put into service and to help determine falsework/formwork removal and road opening times under different environmental conditions of Illinois.
