|Title:||Workability of air-entrained lightweight concrete from rheology perspective||Authors:||Chia, K.-S.
|Issue Date:||Jun-2007||Citation:||Chia, K.-S., Zhang, M.-H. (2007-06). Workability of air-entrained lightweight concrete from rheology perspective. Magazine of Concrete Research 59 (5) : 367-375.

Results show that yield stress and plastic viscosity of air-entrained concrete were lower than those of non-air-entrained concrete with similar superplasticiser dosage. As the entrained-air content increased, the plastic viscosity decreased whereas the yield stress remained relatively unchanged. The slump of the air-entrained concrete was significantly higher than the non-air-entrained concrete. At similar yield stress, the slump of the air-entrained concrete was higher owing to its lower plastic viscosity by air entrainment. At similar slump, the air-entrained concrete had higher yield stress and lower plastic viscosity, implying that higher shear stress is needed to initiate flow but flow resistance would be lower.||Source Title:||Magazine of Concrete Research||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/66420||ISSN:||00249831||DOI:||10.1680/macr.2007.59.5.367|
