Title: Calcium Cholride in Concrete

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Calcium chloride has been used for many years to acclerate the early strength development of concrete. The effects on other properties of concrete are not as well known. This paper presents test results on the effects of type of cement, age, temperature and mix proportions on the strength of concrete containing CaCl2, as well as the effect of CaCl2 on the volume change, heat generation, time of set, alkali-aggregate reaction, resistance to abrasion and sulfate attack of concrete. References to the work of other investigators and some of their general conclusions are included.
