Subject: Re: [TowerTalk] Concrete with air.
What they are suggesting is higher strength concrete 25Mpa which is about
3600 psi. The air is air entrainment. 5% is the value you should look for.
This will improve the conrete's durability especially freeze-thaw
durability. I know you VE3's live in the temperate zone but every little bit
helps. Mpa is the abbreviation for Mega-Pascals the metric measure of
pressure or in this case force per unit area.
