Cold Weather Concreting
The negative effects of placing concrete in cold weather are well established. Concrete can be damaged to such an extent that it is unfit for use, has lower strength development or reduced durability. Therefore, it is important that precautions are taken to ensure that the performance of the Concrete is not unduly affected.
In this seminar we will deal with the practical aspects of successfully placing concrete during cold weather. We will also look at the damage caused by freezing temperatures to fresh concrete.
