Chemical admixtures are used in concrete mixtures to produce particular engineering properties such as rapid hardening, water-proofing or resistance to cold. Chemical Admixtures for Concrete surveys recent developments in admixture technology, explaining the mechanisms by which admixtures produce their effects, the various types of admixtures available, their selection and use.
Because of the economies they can offer, admixtures are being used increasingly in civil engineering projects worldwide. The book pays particular attention to good practice and includes a detailed chapter on the international standards currently in force.

From Our Editors

Concrete is a building material most of us take for granted. Some amazing properties in concrete result in, for example, rapid hardening. N. Mailvaganam, a National Research Council of Canada scientist, joins up with R. Rixom, an American researcher, to explore the various chemical admixtures in concrete. Chemical Admixtures of Concrete verifies the science behind admixtures, the various types available and their specific uses.
