Concrete Admixtures (Additives)

Concrete admixtures (additives) enhances the properties of concrete for applications in construction with special requirements Concrete additives are used to achieve desired workability in case of low water cement ratio, and to enhance setting time of concrete for long distance transportation of concrete...

Cool Pavements Study

conventional asphalt and concrete pavement demonstrates that concrete pavements can have a cooler surface due to its lighter color For this reason, the use of conventional concrete is often considered a cool pavement strategy There are several such strategies presented in this report....

Concrete for Road Pavements

Corrosion resistance of the modified concrete at the age of 360 days is raised more than 15% The amount of sparingly soluble hydrated compounds is increased when these two additives are applied together The concrete designed with given additives is recommended for creation of an effective pavement © 2017 The Authors...

Asphalt additives in thick hot mixed asphalt

Abstract Asphalt concrete field test pavements were placed in District 19 north of Texarkana on US-59/71 in 1987 and 1988 to evaluate the ability of certain asphalt additives to enhance resistance to cracking and rutting...

Seven Must

Nov 20, 2019· These types of concrete admixtures are commonly used to reduce the effect of high temperatures that could produce a faster initial setting of concrete Set retarding admixtures are used in concrete pavement construction, allowing more time for finishing concrete pavements, reducing additional costs to place a new concrete batch plant on the job ....

US5173117A

An additive for roller compacted concrete pavement which controls the heat of hydration, prevents the reduction of packing of the pavement and prevents thermal cracking of the dried end product The additive is a hydrolyzable tannin compound used alone or in conjunction with a surface active agent...

Experimental evaluation of anti

Two widely-used asphalt concrete mixture performance tests (the AASHTO T-283 and the asphalt pavement analyzer under water) and two mixture constituent tests (the boiling water test and the pull-off tensile strength test) are conducted to characterize the effects of anti-stripping additives on the binder-aggregate bonding potential in mixtur...

Title: An Investigation of the Effects ,

11 Therefore, this paper studies three distinct WMA additives, including their effects on asphalt binder and 12 mixture properties at three mixing temperatur 13 Each of the additives was mixed into the unmodified asphalt binder at recommended rates 14 according to the WMA producer The study included one additive from each major WMA category...
