Abstract: This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the effect of curing on the degree of cement hydration and capillary porosity of concrete in a tropical environment. It provides basic information for the estimation of w/c of hardened concrete using petrographic methods. Concrete with w/c ratios of 0.30 to 0.70 with an increment of 0.05 was investigated. The concrete was cured at 20 and 35 °C and exposed to various durations of moist curing. The results indicated that the concrete cured at 20 °C water for 28 days had a higher degree of cement hydration and lower capillary porosity than did the concrete cured in water of the same temperature for 7 days followed by exposure to outdoor air for 21 days, but had an opposite trend compared to the concrete cured in 35 °C water for 7 days followed by exposure to outdoor air. However, the differences on the degree of cement hydration and capillary porosity for the concrete cured in these different conditions were not significant. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
