Selection of Superplasticizers for High-Performance Concrete

And it is not found appropriate to add more superplasticizer with an intention to increase the slump value, as the mix lacks water. Such situations can ask for a small amount of water to recover the slump instantaneously, but the gained slump value will be lost once the reaction has been carried out within it. So, the optimization of high-performance concrete for a location can be carried out ...

A typical curve showing the effect of dosage of super plasticizer on slump is shown in Fig.6.16. The improved workability developed due to the use of super plasticizers lasts only for a short duration. It has been observed that this improvement in workability lasts only from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. Some researchers have found this period from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. Hence the rate of loss ...

Superplasticizers in Concrete - Building Research

Superplasticizers are the improved chemical admixtures over Plasticizers with highly effective Plasticizing effects on wet concrete. Superplasticizers result in substantial enhancement in workability at a given water-cement ratio. For a constant workability, reduction of water content up to 30% may be achieved by the use of Superplasticizers. Superplasticizers can be used at the higher dosages ...

Use of Water Reducers, Retarders, and Superplasticizer

Use of Water Reducers, Retarders, and Superplasticizers. Introduction. Many important characteristics of concrete are influenced by the ratio (by weight) of water to cementitious materials (w/cm) used in the mixture. By reducing the amount of water, the cement paste will have higher density, which results in higher paste quality. An increase in ...
