Concretes with Unique Properties for Special Building Structures
The paper presents new results in the building materials area. One of the solutions of the thin-walled elements obtaining can be achieved due to new additive using. The main purpose of the paper was improvement concrete properties for thin-walled constructive elements. The experimental and standard methods have been used and new complex additive for concrete. The research shows that a comprehensive additive consisting of aqueous solution of polycarboxilate polymer, silica sol and potassium nitrite is effective and makes it possible to produce high-efficiency concrete with unique properties: higher compression strength, higher crack resistance, frost resistance, water resistance, abrasion resistance. The study shows that the concrete is chemical resistant. Modified concrete can be recommended for manufacturing critical concrete structures of special purpose, for example high-rise constriction.
