RE: High Strength Concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Not "doh" but it makes me feel good that most have been addressed. To wit:

1. Air Entrainment: THANKS!
2. Slope to Drain: DONE.
3. Broom Finish: DONE.
4. Crack repair: THANKS!
5. Steel protection: I am using a heavier-than-typical spec on the 
galvanizing for the composite steel deck. Anything else I should consider? 
Structural steel is galvanized as per usual in process structures. 6. 
Corrosion inhibitors: THANKS! 7. Pozzolanic admixtures: OR Silica Fume, 

Really, Jim, thanks, this is the sort of sanity check I was looking for.

		Air entrainment,
		Slope to drain,
		Light Broom finish,
		If cracks are not acceptable, either provide or require a repair method,
		If the elements are corrosive, some method of protecting the steel 
underneath and reinforcing within: corrosion-inhibiting admixture, pozzolan 
 (I know, ACI does not use that term anymore) that densifies the concrete, 
good vibration techniques or SCC, ...

		Have you said "DOH!" to all of these?

I'm not sure if 6000 PSI concrete counts as high-strength anymore, but I
