This presentation will cover the various strategies for developing concrete mixtures that can achieve required compressive strengths within 4-72 hours. We will discuss the optimal integration of mixture proportioning and chemical admixture technology to best satisfy all of the project demands. We will also discuss the impact of these proportions on the handling, placement and finishing of the concrete.
