Abstract:
Part I of the paper reports results of an investigation undertaken to evaluate the degree to which the 7- and 28-day strengths of concrete test cylinders containing superplasticizing admixtures could be estimated by the modified boiling (accelerated curing) tests procedure. . .Part II of the paper reports the results of an investigation to determine the effect of repeated doses of superplasticizers on the properties of concrete.
