SPR-4727: Practical Implementation of Superabsorbent Polymers for Internally Cured Concrete

This project will determine practical ways to utilize superabsorbent polymer (SAP) internal curing agents in concrete mixtures composed ofType IL cement and other supplementary cementitious materials, including slag, silica fume, and E5® nanosilica. Evidence-based guidance will be provided on specific implementation strategies, including SAP delivery method, batching sequence, mixing requirements, and external curing needs for SAP-concrete mixtures.
