Equipment for the investigation of the accelerated curing of concrete using direct electric conduction.

  The need for accelerated curing of concrete in precast civil engineering components is discussed, and the techniques available to achieve this are presented, with particular emphasis on the use of direct electrical conduction.

The principles of the design of automatic laboratory equipment to investigate accelerated curing of concrete using this technique are described, and results are presented for trial experiments, including an assessment of the input energy necessary to achieve a particular degree of curing in a given time.
