VOIDLESS CONCRETE MIXTURES FOR BRIDGE DECKS
The purpose of this study was to modify concrete mix-design formulas to supplant all water over and above that needed for hydration with a non-evaporable material-thus producing a no-void concrete. It was adjudged that a water-cement ratio of 0.244 would be practical for hydration of the coment. Several polymeric materials, asphalts, and oils were used to replace the excess mixing water. Success was achieved using two latexes and one epoxy. The use of these materials in concrete resulted in improved strength, reduction of air voids and permeability, and enhancement of resistance to corrosive chloride salts.
