Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Admixtures for Concrete , you'll learn ...

  • The reasons admixtures are used and the desired results of the admixtures
  • The most common admixtures and specific comments about their use, their relative strengths and weaknesses
  • ASTM Standard C494, "Standard Specification for Chemical Admixtures for Concrete
  • Corrosion inhibiting admixtures and why they may be worth their relatively high cost

An admixture is a material added to the batch of concrete before or during its mixing to modify its freshly mixed, setting or hardened properties. About 80% of concrete produced in North America has one or more admixtures. And 70% of the concrete produced contains a water-reducer admixture. You can easily see the importance of these products for today’s engineers.

One very common admixture is used in about 40% of ready-mix products. This course will reveal the substance, its source, and the reason it is such a predominant admixture. It will also discuss the two main groups of admixtures and the effects of many of the most common of these substances.

Even if you work with concrete on only an occasional basis, the information contained in the course will help you to better understand the product and its use.
