Pouring Concrete in Cold Weather

Cold weather concrete should have the correct amount of air entrained voids that will resist freezing and thawing effects. Concrete in cold weather is recommended to have a low slump, and minimal water to cement ratio, to reduce bleeding and decreases setting time. Use concrete curing blankets to prevent freezing and keep the concrete at an ...

CIP 42- Thermal Cracking of Concrete

land cement that generates a lower heat of hydration. Avoid specifying an excessively low w/cm. Retarding chemical admixtures may delay but not reduce peak concrete tem-peratures. A cooler initial concrete temperature will reduce the peak temperature in the structure but needs to be bal-anced with practical feasibility and project costs.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF CEMENT PRODUCTION

cement industry has been using large quantities of waste fuels or biomass fuels, for more than 15 years. The production of cement involves the consumption of large quantities of raw materials, energy, and heat. Cement production also results in the release of a significant amount of solid waste materials and gaseous emissions.
