Keywords: concrete durability; simulation model; maturity index; duration of curing; rate of strength development; frost resistance; strike of time of formwork.
The paper provides an overview of different methods that can be used for concrete maturity determination, outlining Romanian Concrete Code Specification (NE 012-99) in relation to using an effective and rational method in evaluating in-situ concrete strength at different ages.
