Chemical Admixtures for Concrete, Third Edition by Noel P. Mailvaganam, M.R. Rixom

By Noel P. Mailvaganam, M.R. Rixom

Chemical admixtures are utilized in concrete combos to provide specific engineering homes reminiscent of speedy hardening, water-proofing or resistance to chilly. Chemical Admixtures for Concrete surveys fresh advancements in admixture expertise, explaining the mechanisms during which admixtures produce their results, some of the different types of admixtures to be had, their choice and use.
Because of the economies they could provide, admixtures are getting used more and more in civil engineering tasks around the world. The publication will pay specific awareness to stable perform and contains a certain bankruptcy at the foreign criteria at the moment in strength.

32 Changes in slump and VeBe values for concrete containing straight addition of a hydroxycarboxylic-acid-based water-reducing agent. Fig. 31 The loss of slump with time when straight addition of a water-reducing agent is made (Ravina). © 1999 Roger Rixom and Noel Mailvaganam materials are generally preferred for the lower cement contents (high aggregatecement ratio) mix designs. Typical comparative data are shown in Fig. 33. 0 in these mixes. (b) Designed workability The higher the required workability, the greater is the reduction in water-cement ratio when an addition of a water-reducing admixture is made.

18 summarizes the tensile flexural and compressive strengths for some published results and also includes some comparative figures for control concretes. It can be concluded that water-reducing admixtures of the lignosulfonate and hydroxycarboxylic acid types will not alter the relationship between the compressive strength and the tensile and flexural strengths. (c) Modulus of elasticity There is a paucity of recorded comparative data on the elastic modulus of concretes containing water-reducing admixtures.

25. It can be seen that the relationship between the amount of heat evolved and the amount of water combined with the cement is maintained whether the admixture is present or not. This work also indicated that the retardation in the early stages is compensated for at later times by an acceleration. In the presence of calcium lignosulfonate [58], the calcium silicate hydrate gel from the C3S and C2S phases tends to have a greater proportion of the crumpled foil morphology type than the corresponding system without the admixture.
