What do you mean by Maturity of concrete ?


It is not only the time but also the temperature during the early period of hydration that influence the rate of gain of strength of concrete. since the strength development of concrete depends on both time and temperature it can be said that strength is a function of summation of product of time and temperature.

This summation is called maturity of concrete.

Maturity = ∑ (time X temperature)
