Compressive and flexural strengths, dimensional changes, and freeze-thaw resistance of concretes made with low water-to-cement ratios were evaluated. In addition, exploratory studies of the rheological properties of low water content cement-aggregate-admixture systems were performed. The results indicate that, under well-controlled conditions, workable concrete mixes can be obtained with water-cement ratios as low as 0.28. Additionally, concretes having higher strengths as well as better freeze-thaw resistance and other engineering properties could be obtained. Unsolved problems connected with production of low water-to-cement ratio concretes are briefly discussed.
