scope:

This report deals with state-of-the-art and commonly used admixtures. Materials such as supplementary cementitious materials that are used to produce concrete are only referred to in regards to their interaction with chemical admixtures. Chapters 1 through 4 address topics that typically apply to all admixtures, Chapters 5 through 16 categorize chemical admixtures generically or with respect to their performance characteristics, and Chapters 17 through 21 provide information on the use of multiple combinations of admixtures in the production of some unique concretes. Information characterizing each category is presented with brief statements of the general purposes and expected effects for each group of materials. The wide scope of admixture technology, the continued entrance of new or modified materials, and the variations of effects with different concreting materials and conditions preclude a complete listing of all admixtures and their effects on concrete. Table 1.2 lists the admixture types addressed in this document and summarizes their effects and benefits in concrete, and typical materials used in their manufacture.
