The focus of this research work was to analyse the effect of different types of curing on
compressive strength of concrete structures. For this purpose, 54 test specimens of cylindrical shape were
prepared. These specimens were cured with different methods and were tested on different age days to
analyse the effect of curing on compressive strength. Test specimens cured with conventional water curing
method gives the highest results as compared to the other adopted methods.
