Concrete admixtures are essential components in modern concrete technology. They are chemical or mineral substances added to concrete during mixing to enhance its properties and performance. This course provides an in-depth exploration of concrete admixtures, beginning with a clear understanding of their definition and purpose. Additionally, admixture mix design parameters such as: properties, setting time, benefits and applications, dosages and testing, compatibilities, and interactivefunctions and mechanisms are discussed where they apply. List of topics:

  • Definition, Advantages and Purpose of Admixtures
  • Historical Overview and Evolution of Admixture Usage
  • Importance of Proper Admixture Selection
  • Classification of Concrete Admixtures
  • Types of Water-Reducing Admixtures
  • Types of Retarding Admixtures
  • Types of Accelerating Admixtures
  • Types of Air-Entraining Admixtures
  • Corrosion and Alkali-Silica Reaction Inhibitors
  • Natural Pozzolanic Minerals
  • Coloring, Shrinkage-Reducing Admixtures
  • Type of Superplastizing Admixtures
  • Types of Set Controlling Admixtures
  • Dosage, Selection and Testing Recommendations
  • Recommendations for Increasing Durability and Strength

Learning Objectives

At the successful conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to identify and discuss:
  • how to select the appropriate admixture for the intended application.
  • the various types and classifications of concrete admixtures and their purpose.
  • how to achieve better strength and durability from their concrete mix.
  • The proper dosages, applications, and testing of their new concrete mix design.
Intended Audience: This course is general in nature, and would apply as suitable continuing education for: structural, civil, geotechnical, transportation, water resources, and other engineering professionals whose job description may require a generalized knowledge in achieving better concrete mix design through the proper use of admixture constituents.
