This collection of 20 papers represents the most comprehensive work to date on one of the industry’s newest developments-the high-range water-reducing admixtures called superplasticizers. In clear, understandable terms, it answers important questions and collects information from an international symposium on the applications, advantages, and limitations of superplasticized concrete. This fact-filled volume covers such topics of vital interest as what superplasticizers mean to you and the concrete industry. How superplasticizers can help you. And under what circumstances are they at their best. In-depth case histories of current world-wide applications show you how superplasticizers actually work.
