Abstract:
The meaning of the term superlasticised concrete and the concept to which it relates together with a brief outline of its development are described. Comparisons are made with this type of concrete and that regarded as conventional. Distinction is made between high workability/normal water content concrete as opposed to high strength/low water:cement ratio concrete.
