Venue: Online Event
Hot weather conditions are usually caused by a combination of factors including high ambient temperature, high solar radiation, low relative humidity and high wind velocity. While prolonged high ambient temperatures are not common in Ireland, ambient temperatures of 20°C and above, together with low humidity and drying winds present a high risk to long term concrete quality.
As these conditions can impact both fresh and hardened concrete, precautions are necessary to ensure that concrete performance is not unduly affected. In this seminar we will provide practical information for the successful planning and placing of concrete during the summer months.
This seminar will be of intertest to Main Contractors, Consulting Engineers, Local Authority Engineers, Specialist Sub-Contractors, Site Supervisory Personnel and Producers.
