The formats for data on chemical admixtures that are
described in this report are intended to aid the
creation of a coherent system of concrete materials
property databases. This preliminary document is a
guide that presents a recommended format for use in
computerization of concrete materials property data. It
addresses the problem of distinguishing one chemical
admixture from another by providing a logical scheme for
organizing and subdividing material characteristics and
parameters to create a unique chemical admixture
material identifier. The organization and structure
presented in this guide provide a framework for
cross-referencing chemical admixture properties, data,
and other information which is consistent with the
principles laid down in the standard guides that have
been prepared by ASTM Committee E-49 and which are due
to be adopted by American Concrete Institute (ACI)
Committee 126. This preliminary working document is
intended to assist the work of ACI committee 126 by
providing a draft for use by committee members and
others who may wish to offer suggestions for its
development. This preliminary document will be
superseded by an official ACI document in the series on
concrete materials property database formats that is
being prepared by ACI 126.
