inner curing was once used already within the Roman instances, for instance the recognized Pantheon construction is completed partially with internally cured concrete. The exterior curing of concrete reminiscent of fogging the skin merely achieves the outside of the concrete, with inner curing the complete third-dimensional microstructure of the concrete might be cured. the target of this thesis was once to review the influence of inner curing on compressive energy, tensile/flexural power and drying shrinkage. The target was once additionally to figure out which grain sizes light-weight aggregates could be the most sensible in inner curing use. during this thesis the inner curing is completed with light-weight aggregates. The bought exams effects confirmed that the easiest grain measurement of light-weight aggregates for inner curing are 0-2 mm and 2-4 mm. the use of those sizes enabled to provide concrete having comparable mechanical houses to common concretes yet considerably diminished drying shrinkage.
