Abstract:
A discussion of the effect of purposefully entrained air on the properties of concrete. Factors which affect the entrainment of air in concrete such as cement, sand, and mix temperature are discussed. Strength reductions to be expected and suggested air contents as related to maximum size aggregate are shown.
