Materials that are added to a concrete mix to change certain properties of the concrete such as a retarding setting time, reducing water requirements or making the concrete easier to work with.
Materials used as filler in concrete; may include mixtures of sand, gravel, crushed stone, crushed gravel, or blast-furnace slag
Deformed reinforcing bars that are rolled from carbon-steel axles used on railroad cars.
A diagonal supporting member used to reinforce a form against the weight of the concrete.
Concrete that has hardened and gained its structural strength.
Work connected with concrete slabs used for walks, driveways, patios and floors.
The base of a foundation system for a wall, column and chimney. It bears directly on the undisturbed soil and is made wider than the object it supports to distribute the weight over a greater area.
Wood or metal structures built to contain plastic concrete until it hardens.
Concrete that has hardened but has not yet gained its structural strength.
The catalytic action water has in transforming the chemicals in portland cement into a hard solid. The water interacts with the chemicals to form calcium silicate hydrate gel.
An informal unit of force that equals 1,000 (kilo) pounds.
Concrete placed informs in a continuous pour without construction joints. Also known as a monolithic pour.
A metric measurement of pressure.
Column-like structural members that penetrate through unstable, nonbearing soil to lower levels of loadbearing soils. They provide support for grade beams or columns that carry the structural load of a building.
Concrete when it is first mixed and is in a semi liquid and moldable state.
American Plywood Association's trade name for reusable material for constructing concrete forms.
The name given by the ancient Romans to describe the volcanic ash they used as a type of cement. Today, the therm is used for natural or calcined materials.(including fly ash and silica fume)or air-cooled blast furnace slag.
Deformed reinforcing bars that are rolled from selected used railroad rails.
Abbreviation for reinforcing bars. Also called rerod.
Leveling newly placed concrete to an established grade. Also called striking off.
Temporary bracing used to support above-grade concrete slabs while they harden.
A ground-supported concrete slab 3 1/2" or thicker that is used as foundation system. It combines concrete foundation walls with a concrete floor slab that rests directly on an approved base that has been placed over the ground. Also called Slab-at-grade.
The ash produced during the reduction of iron ore to iron in a blast furnace.
The distance a standard-sized cone made of freshly mixed concrete with sag. This is known as a slump test.
Vertical members of a form panel used to support sheathing.
Soil prepared and compacted to support a structure or pavement.
Horizontal pieces placed on the outsides of the form walls to strengthen and stiffen the walls. The form ties are also fastened to the walers.
The ration of water to cement, usually by weight (water weight divided by cement weight) in a concrete mix. The water cement ration includes all cementitious components of the concrete, including fly ash and pozzolans, as well as portland cement.
