...I Luker; SW Tabsh If a concrete specimen is tested to failure in compression and the machine allows the longitudinal strain in the specimen to be non-uniform over the cross-section of the specimen at its maximum load, then that load is lower than it would be if the strains were uniform. The results...

Sometimes a little variation in the dosage of the admixture could lead to detrimental side effects, such as segregation, excessive set retardation, or excess air content in the concrete. Results showed that the chemical composition of the cement is critical to ensure good compatibility...
