Concrete curing and formwork stripping times

Execution of concrete structures

The European standard for the execution of concrete structures, DIN EN 13670, was implemented in Germany under the supervision of the regulatory authorities together with Eurocode 2 for the design of concrete, reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structures. The new standard for the execution of concrete structures comprises the European standard DIN EN 13670 and the corresponding national application rules, DIN 1045-3. On 1 July 2012, both standards replaced the hitherto solely generally applicable standard for the execution of structures DIN 1045-3  from 2008.
