Enclosures made with flexible materials are less Expanded polystyrene extruded R – 12 expensive and easier to build and remove. The since it is influenced by several job factors, including recommendations in this chapter are based on job con- type and amount of cement and other aspects of the ditions meeting the requirements listed in Section 6.

Guides to temperature uniformity, refined cold-weather concreting definitions and more clearly defined approaches to temperature protection are but a few of the updates found in the revised spec.

Concrete should be placed into the drum at a moderate rate. The use of air heat requires construction of costly enclosures, which must be heated in addition to protecting the concrete.
