R Hot Weather Concreting. ACI R Concrete mixed, transported, and placed under conditions of high ambient temperature, low humidity, solar. Temperature, volume changes, and cracking problems associated with mass concrete are treated more thoroughly in ACI R, R, and R. ACI Committee defines hot weather as any combination of high ambient temperature, high concrete temperature, low relative humidity, wind speed and.

Care must be taken to evenly inundate the material so that slump variation from load to load is minimized. Certain productsmay cause significant bleeding, which may be beneficial in many instances, but may require some precautions in others see Section 2.

In addition, the following should recorded identified be and with the work progress in so that conditions relating to any part of the concrete conbe identified at a later date: The need for such measures as spraying of forms and subgrade, cooling concrete, providing sunshades, windscreens, or fogging and the like, and minimizing delays in placement and curing should be anticipated.

Available systems include one thatbased is on heat-pump technology, which is usable for both cooling and heating of concrete. Because bleeding rates vary from zero to over 0.

Coarse aggregate has the greatest mass in a typical concrete mixture. To use this method, the producer must have available large amounts of chilled water and the necessary water-cooling equipment for production requirements.

All temperatures are in F or C. These methods and their effectiveness are discussed further.

These will be of particular benefit in the event of delayed placements or deliveries over greater distances. Further testing may then be required in production-size concrete batches. Apartfrom the unsightliness of poorly consolidated concrete, insufficient compaction in the form may seriously impair the durability and structural performance reinforced concrete.


The most commonlyquoted value is 0. The procedures selected will depend on: The method requires concrete materials to be at room temperature [in the range of 68 to 86 F 20 to 30 C ]. Specimens molded and xci, and coordination of all phasesof work. Please choose a product format. I b -Effect of temperature increase on the water requirement of concrete U.

Thehigher watercontent will cause strength loss and increase the cracking tendencyof the concrete unless offset by measures describedin Sections 2. Before the concrete reaches final afi, the cracks can frequently beclosed by striking the surface on each side aco the crack with float.

Continue mixing for 15 min; 5. If possible, the 3005r should be kept in a uniformly moderate temperature qci to allow theconcrete to develop its full strength potential. Be the first to review this item Amazon Best Sellers Rank: Therefore, all practical means should be employed to keep theaggregates as cool 305 possible.

Excessive fogapplication which would wash the fresh concrete surface or cause surplus water to cling to reinforcement or stand on the concrete surface during floating and troweling must beavoided. Because water-reducing generally retarders increase concrete strength, they can be used, with proper mixtureadjustments, to avoidstrengthlossesthatwould otherwise resultfrom high concrete temperatures Gaynor et al ; Mittelacher and The materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described in this document should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI certifications or equivalent.

Procedures under hot weather conditions are no different from good practices under normal weather conditions. Each are widely used as partial replacements for portland cement; they may impart a slower rate of setting and of early strength gain toconcrete, which the is desirable in hot weather concreting, as explained in Section 2. University Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, Member, There’s a problem loading this avi right now.

I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? The general influence of the temperature of concrete ingredients on concrete temperature is calculated from the equations in Appendix A, and shown in Fig.

When sprinkling is used, care must be taken that erosion of the surface does not occur. These concrete mixtures should be provided thermal protection to ensure gradual cooling at a rate thatwillnot cause themto crack; see Section 4. Each slump loss and invite the addition of water to operation in finishing should be carried out promptly when the concrete isready for it. The full and complete returned product will be accepted if returned within 60 days of receipt and in salable condition.

The Institute shall be liable for any loss not or damage arising therefrom. Concrete strengths are generally found to be substantially higher than those of comparable concrete without admixture and with the same cement content. With the limitations on accurately predicting slump, as explained in Section 3.
