Study on Effects of Concrete Admixtures on Performance of Concrete
Concrete admixture is a kind of addition agents, which can improve the performance of concrete. Adding a certain amount of concrete admixture can enhance the early strength, the age strength, and the anti-permeability strength of concrete. Also, concrete admixtures can improve the workability and adjust the setting time of concrete, so as to reduce the dosage of concrete and save the cost of concrete. This paper describes the types of concrete admixture and their functions, studies the functions of water reducers, and analyzes their effects to concrete, so as to improve the concrete performance and save materials in actual operation.
