Concrete practitioners use admixtures for multiple of reasons such as increasing the workability of concrete, adjusting the setting time, accelerating the rate of strength gain, etc. However, in some case, admixtures may cause adverse effects
What is nano-materials? Using Nano-materials in Cold WeatherConcrete: Materials with at least one external dimension between 1 and 100 nm are referred to as nanomaterials. According to the criteria provided by the European Commission,
This article represent the second part on the Effect of Cold Weather Admixture System on Concrete. This first part dealt with the effect of Cold Weather Admixture System (CWAS) on the fresh properties of concrete.
This article Effect of Cold Weather Admixture System on Concrete will be divided in two parts to avoid lengthy posting. This first part will deal with the effect of Cold Weather Admixture System (CWAS) on
What is High Performance Concrete? High-performance concrete (HPC) is concrete that has been designed to be more durable and, if necessary, stronger than conventional concrete. The majority of the components in HPC mixes are identical
Calculation of Concrete Target Mean Strength What is Compressive Strength of Concrete? Simply, the compressive strength can be defined as the capacity of concrete to withstand loads before failure. Of the many tests applied to
