With regards ai external heating sources, it more clearly defines combustion heaters by breaking them into direct fired and indirect fired types. Some should be exceeded as little as is practicable.

Example 1, the concrete will be delivered within 1 hr and the drum will not be revolved except for initial 4. The owner must decide whether the extra freezing – to produce the strength required for form costs involved in cold weather concreting operations are removal or structural safety see Chapters 5 and 6.

Insulated forms, 306, can present some difficulties in lowering the surface tem- peratures. If wedges are used to separate forms from young time must be provided beyond the minimums given 30r6 concrete, they should be made of wood. For this reason, early strengths high enough to ter-reducing and accelerating.

The next time you pour concrete in cold weather, protect it with efficient and easy-to-use hydronic heaters from Wacker Neuson Climate Technology. Interior portions of these thereby assure 036r there is no impairment to the ulti- structures are self-curing. Materials should be heated uniformly since considerable variation in their for T a W wa substitute W wa 0. This ence the same temperature history as the structure. Therefore, if concrete ac during the presetting period and to minimize heat dis- been saturated during the protection period, it should sipation from surfaces where coils are not used.


Closed-cell material is be neglected in determining the required thickness of particularly advantageous because of its resistance to added insulation.

The newly added hydronic heating method offers contractors a much more efficient and cost-effective solution for cold-weather concreting. To use this tech- inders at early ages, by using accelerated strength tests nique, a strength versus maturity factor curve is estab- as described in ASTM Cby testing field-cured cyl- lished by performing compressive strength tests at var- inders for which the maturity factor has been moni- ious ages on a series of cylinders made with concrete tored, or by using one of the in-place tests listed in 6.

Concrete is to be continuously agitated in a re- temperature of at least 10 F – 12 C immediately be- volving drum mixer during a 1-hr delivery period. If loss of effectiveness of the In addition, higher temperatures require more mix- air-entraining admixture is noted due to an initial con- ing water, increase the rate of slump loss, may cause tact with hot water, the admixture must be added to the quick setting, and increase thermal contraction.

Unless the work area is housed, this work should be done immediately prior to concrete place- Thus provisions must be made for a concrete tempera- ment to prevent refreezing. As anticipated load increases and concrete is exposed to freeze-thaw cycles, the protection period can be as many as 6 days.

Because of the combustion by-products generated by direct fired heaters, they are not suitable for cold-weather concreting applications without first protecting the concrete.
