Compressive Strength Development Model for Concrete Cured by Microwave Heating Form Koh, Tae-Hoon; Moon, Do-Young; Bae, Jung-Myung; Yoo, Jung-Hoon;
Time dependent model for prediction of compressive strength development of concrete cured by microwave heating form was presented in this study. The presented model is similar to the equation which is given in ACI 209R-92 but the constants which is dependent on cement type and curing method in the presented model are modified by the regression analysis of the experimental data. Laboratory scale concrete specimens were cast and cured by the microwave heating form and drilled cores extracted from the specimens were fractured in compression. The measured core strengths are converted to standard core and in-situ strengths. These in-situ strengths are used for the regression.
