Chemical Admixtures Water Reducers (WR) and High Range Water Reducers (HRWR) ASTM C494: WR: reduces the quantity of mixing water HRWR: for the same consistency, reduces the water by 12% or greater Surface active agents: reduce the surface tension of water produces a dispersed cement structure Without With flocculated dispersed Typical water reduction At given cement and air content WR: 5 to 10% Increases consistency HRWR: 15 to 30% Increases strength

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
