Concretes with Organic Admixtures

Open access


The current work is intended to explain the role of some organic admixtures on the hardened structure of refractory concretes with aluminous cement. The influences on the mechanical-structural properties in the normal hardening but in the heating conditions at different temperatures are emphasized, also. These are due to the influence on the hydration process (i.e. the kind of the neoformations and degree of hydration) and implicitly on the size and distribution of structural pores.
