AN INTERIM REPORT ON THE USE OF WATER REDUCING ADMIXTURES IN CRPCC ON THE SOUTHWEST EXPRESSWAY

INFORMATION IS PRESENTED ON THE PERFORMANCE OF TWO WATER- REDUCING ADMIXTURES USED IN CONCRETE PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION. THE STUDY OBJECTIVE WAS TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THESE ADMIXTURES ON THE WORKABILITY AND OTHER PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE CONCRETE. MIXES CONTAINING THE ADMIXTURES WERE COMPARED WITH MIXES WITHOUT THE ADMIXTURES. TEST RESULTS SHOW THAT THE CONCRETES CONTAINING THE ADMIXTURES HAD BETTER WORKABILITY AND SLIGHTLY MORE THAN 30% HIGHER 28-DAY AVERAGE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTHS THAN THE COMPARATIVE CONCRETES WITHOUT THE ADMIXTURES. /BPR/
