In this paper we present the results obtained in the studies carried out on evolution of the compressive strength of identical concretes made with different types of cements based on the spanish standard UNE 80 301 when they are subjected to critical temperatures (5 °C and 35 °C), compared with the same concretes cured under normalysed conditions.
The number of the different cements used was eight.
The behaviour of the concretes was analysed through the results of the compression strengths at 3, 7, 14, 28 and 90 days, determining the grades of relative maturity of these concretes subjerted to the different temperatures.
From the work it can be concluded that these concretes made of different cements fulfill with their forecasted strength at 28 days.
