Abstract

In our experimental analysis, we have considered that curing plays an important role while considering the compressive strength of the concrete. Basically in general, curing is done by water. But in our experimental analysis, we have used the curing compounds for the curing purpose. Comparative studies were carried out for compressive strength. The present investigations were done for M20 grade of concrete. The investigation involved four types of curing method which are water curing; air dried curing, external curing & internal curing.
