Moisture curling in concrete with fine lightweight aggregates

Moisture curling in concrete with fine lightweight aggregates

Description. Moisture curling in concrete with fine lightweight aggregates. Moisture gradient development of concrete that incorporates saturated fine lightweight aggregates (FLWA) is not well understood. When a concrete beam or slab is exposed to external drying, water is transmitted through the surface pores and an internal drying front forms.
