When severe exposure is not anticipated, its use ally, the absorption of lightweight coarse aggregate may be may be waived, but the beneficial effects of air entrainment measured by the method described in ASTM C or by the on concrete workability and cohesiveness are desirable and spin-dry procedure discussed in Appendix B, which permits can be achieved at air contents of not less than 4.
Entrained air also lowers the unit weight of the concrete by 3. The weight aggregate concrete that may be subjected to freezing question of suitability is frequently not left to the individual and thawing or to deicer salts is 4 to 6 percent air when max- who selects the proportions.

These quantities of mixing water are for use in computing cement or cementitious materials content for trial batches at 68 to 77 F. They are maximum for reasonably Step 2: Choice of nominal maximum size of lightweight well-shaped angular aggregates graded within limits of accepted specifications.

Generally, the nominal Additional recommendations for air content and necessary tolerances on air content maximum size of aggregate should be the largest that is eco- for control in the field are given in a number of ACI documents, including ACI , , , , and ASTM C 94 for ready-mixed concrete also gives air content nomically available and consistent with the dimensions of limits.
The requirements in other documents may not always agree exactly, so in pro- the structure. In no event should the nominal maximum size portioning concrete, consideration must be given to selecting an air content that will meet the needs of the job and also meet the applicable specifications. If the mortar volume will be substantially different from that deter- of forms, one-third the depth of slabs, nor three-quarters of mined in this recommended practice, it may be desirable to calculate the needed air the minimum clear spacing between individual reinforcing content by taking 9 percent of the actual mortar value.
These limita- tions are sometimes waived by the engineer if workability and methods of consolidation are such that the concrete can not necessarily reflected in strength since other compensat- be placed without honeycombing or voids.

That is, the air content should be the cementitious materials.
