Ensuring sufficient water availability in hydrating concrete is a key to achieving quality curing that protects the fresh concrete in the short term and develops the potential properties of the mixture for long-term performance of concrete pavement. Excessive early-age evaporation from the concrete pavement surface can potentially result in plastic shrinkage cracking, high porosity, and low strength at the concrete surface leading to a variety of surface distresses. Application of liquid curing… CONTINUE READING
