Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to establish a relationship between loss in strength of concrete and various concentrations of organic matter contained in algae infested water. Various amounts were added to the mixing water of test batched with the resluting cylinders tested at 28 and 60 days. A close approximation of the allowable concentration of organic matter in a good mixing water was established.
