Abstract:Polybasic organic phosphate and lignosulphonate were combined in appropriate proportions to be a kind of high-range retarder-plasticizer(KM) for use of higher temperatures. Various retarders have been used in ordinary concrete and roller-compacted concrete(RCC)for testing under 45 “C and 25% relative humidity. Rheology and time of setting of fresh concrete and mechanical properties of hardened concrete, allowance of exposure time of bond between two construction layers of RCC,etc. were investigated. Simulated testing for Three Gorges Project was also carried out by testing a t the Development General Co. and the Testing Center of Gezhouba group.
