Heat Loss Compensation in Semi-Adiabatic
Curing Test of Concrete
by P. L. Ng, I. Y. T. Ng, and A. K. H. Kwan

To alleviate early thermal cracking of concrete, a maximum limit is       composition and to exercise appropriate temperature control
often imposed on the adiabatic temperature rise, which has to be          measures such as installation of internal cooling pipes and
measured by an adiabatic curing test using a specially designed           application of external heat insulation.4-6 In any case, first
