Cold Weather Concreting What Happens When Concrete Freezes? Weather conditions at a jobsite – hot or cold, windy or calm, dry or humid – may be vastly different from the optimum conditions assumed at the time a concrete mix is specified, designed, or selected – or from laboratory conditions in which concrete specimens are stored and tested.

Cold-Weather Concreting, Chapter 14

Since the goal of using special mixtures during cold weather concreting is to reduce the time of setting, a low water-cement ratio, low-slump concrete is particularly desirable, especially for cold-weather flatwork; concrete mixtures with higher slumps usually take longer to set.

Cold weather concreting. Special care must be taken when concrete is cast in winter. If the water in the young concrete is allowed to freeze, the concrete will be damaged to such an extent that it is unfit for use. Even if the temperature does not drop below zero, the concrete will not gain strength as quickly as it would during the warmer months.
