Overview

Precast  concrete  production  widely uses steam  curing  to  accelerate  the  concrete  strength  attainment. Achieving one-day target strength in the range 27-31 MPa by accelerated curing methods allows the precast manufacturer to prestress the  concrete  element  onsite and  thereby  helping  to reduce the  production cycle  time. However, the  durability of steam-cured concretes  is often  questioned due to the possible occurrence of delayed ettringite formation (DEF) where the formation of ettringite in later ages.
