2020-12-1  The results of a study conducted by Arpana et al. [ 19] on the use of sugar in concrete as retarder demonstrated that the setting time of concrete increases with increase in the percentage of sugar up to 0.06%. However, both initial and final setting time severely reduces with increase in the sugar content beyond 0.06%.
