The influence of an air-entraining admixture and a superplasticizer on the formation and behaviour of air bubbles in a self-compacting concrete mix are analysed in this paper.
Moreover, to verify the influence a superplasticizer and an air-entraining admixture have on concrete porosity structure parameters, concrete samples were tested during 300 cycles of freezing and testing of porosity structure according to PN-EN 480-11.
Moreover, according to Mlodecki and Stebnicka (1996), these bubbles are slightly bigger than those formed as a result of the functioning of an air-entraining admixture, but their stability is lower (Litvan 1983).

Selection of air-entraining admixtures is based primarily on the recent experience of the State highway departments in Delaware, Michigan, New Jersey, and South Dakota.
The testing program will evaluate the effect of air-entraining admixtures on the stability of air void systems prior to use in concrete and then will test the fresh concrete and hardened concrete at early ages.
