Summary

Curing is critical to achieving a high quality concrete structure, although it costs money and the benefits are not immediately apparent. Consultants usually specify a need for curing, but it is rarely followed through properly and rarely identified as cause of later failure. It ought to be. Curing is an integral part of achieving consistent durable concrete, and with proper knowledge better cheaper concrete can be produced. This book spells out the benefits of curing the concrete, and uniquely brings together information in the research literature along with practical guidance on doing it correctly. It can also inform researchers whose experimental work is rendered invalid if the curing regime is not clearly identified.
