Table of Contents
1. Identify the important changes in the ACI 212R-16 Report on Chemical Admixtures for Concrete from the previous version.
2. Describe some different ways concrete mixed with admixtures, properly designed to improve concrete workability, finishability, strength, and durability properties, adds sustainability qualities to concrete structures.
3. Explain how workability retaining admixtures effects the concrete workability properties at the point of truck delivery.
4. Identify some effects viscosity modifying and rheology modifying admixture have on improving the workability of concrete.
5. Discuss effects of some admixtures have on placing, compacting and finishing pervious concrete pavement.
