You can create curing conditions for any specimen type in ForneyTools and then assign that condition to a set of specimens.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
The curing conditions are important for various reasons, here are some:
- Standards typically require you to report the curing method of your specimens.
- Field cured specimens are typically used to determine if a structure is ready for critical operations.
- Standard cured specimens are used to determine concrete acceptance - field cured specimens are not.
- Some research applications cure specimens under different conditions to compare concrete performance under those various conditions.
HOW IT WORKS
In ForneyTools, start by going to "Specimen | Specimen Cure Conditions" to create curing conditions for your specimen types.
Once you have your curing conditions created, you can assign one to any set of specimens.
