Title: Entrained Air- A Factor in the Design of Concrete Mixes
Author(s): W. A. Cordon
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 605-620
Abstract:Concrete containing air-entraining agents are being extensively employed in present day construction, and as entrained air alters many of the basic properties of concrete mixes such as water requirement, sand requirement, workability, etc., a series of 102 trial mixes was made to establish procedures for designing and adjusting concrete mixes containing entrained air. Useful data have been established from this set of tests, which should facilitate the adjustment and design of air-entraining concrete and also establish a basis for further investigation.
