Abstract : A study was conducted to determine curing temperature effects on a restrained, shrinkage compensated, Type S, lightweight concrete. The cement content was 6.73 SCY and the aggregate was haydite. Temperatures used were 50F, 61F, 72F and 93F. The physical properties observed were expansions, compressive strengths and stress-strain relations. These data were correlated to x-ray intensity ratios for the strength-producing tobermorite and the expansion-producing ettringite. (Author)
