Curing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on details of concrete curing practice as they pertain to construction of Portland cement concrete pavements. It is organized around the major events in curing pavements: curing immediately after placement (initial curing), curing during the period after final finishing (final curing), and termination of curing and evaluation of effectiveness of curing.
Curing has long been recognized as an important process in constructing durable concrete pavements. Proper curing allows the concrete to develop its potential strength and durability. Inadequate curing can result in surface damage in the form of plastic shrinkage cracking, spalling, and erosion of paste. Since many variables influence the choice of curing materials and when and how to apply curing, the material presented places particular emphasis on attention to details with respect to moisture retention and concrete temperature control.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the design and installation of concrete pavements.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Selection of curing materials and procedures
- Analysis of concrete properties and jobsite conditions
- Knowing how to adjust the curing practice to account for specific project conditions
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration Publication FHWA-RD-02-099, "Guide for Curing of Portland Cement Concrete Pavements".
