Abstract:
The paper describes the proportioning of the concrete mix ingredients required when a chemical admixture is used. Generally, the chemical admixture affects the water content, the air content, and the handling characteristics of the concrete. Since the yield of concrete would be affected, several methods of adjusting the mix ingredients are described.
