EVALUATION OF AIR-ENTRAINING ADMIXTURES FOR CONCRETE

THIS INVESTIGATION WAS UNDERTAKEN FOR THE PURPOSE OF DETERMINING THE ACCEPTABILITY OF A NUMBER OF COMMERCIAL ADMIXTURES WHICH WERE AVAILABLE AT THE TIME FOR USE IN THE PRODUCTION OF AIR-ENTRAINED PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE FOR HIGHWAY PAVEMENTS AND BRIDGES. THE COMPLETE PROGRAM INVOLVED THE EVALUATION OF 27 MATERIALS, EACH OF WHICH WAS TESTED IN CONCRETE TO DETERMINE ITS ABILITY TO ENTRAIN AIR, AS WELL AS ITS EFFECT ON FLEXURAL AND COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND ON DURABILITY. AS THE RESULT OF THE EVALUATION STUDY, 26 OF THE 27 MATERIALS WHICH WERE RECEIVED FOR TEST HAVE BEEN CLASSIFIED AS ACCEPTABLE FOR USE AS AIR-ENTRAINING ADMIXTURES. /AUTHOR/
