    The authors have shown from earlier work that the electrical response of cement paste to an alternating electrical field can be used as a technique for monitoring hydration and phenomena such as setting and hardening. This paper demonstrates an area in which the technique could prove effective, by showing the influence of a range of commercial admixtures on electrical response. It is clearly indicated that admixtures have a definite effect on the response characteristics. © 1989 RILEM.
