A description of the production and composition of cement, and its behavior with water, is followed by a definition of the various types of admixture: accelerators, retarders, water reducers, air-entraining agents, workability aids, and mineral admixtures. Specifications and tests for admixtures, and mix design and performance tests for concretes, are then reviewed. A discussion is appended. /TRRL/
