This course discusses considerations when placing concrete in cold weather. The placement of durable, quality concrete is a task that requires experience and a commitment to quality. Cold ambient temperatures decrease concrete's rate of settling. Additionally, placement of concrete in cold temperatures increase the likelihood of a deficient product, unless steps are taken to mitigate potential problems. This course will discuss placement methods that you can employ in cold weather to help ensure that your final product meets specifications.
