Really have no idea on what causing concrete to have air voids in it. Is it causes by evaporation of water during the hydration process?

  • Isn't it just air entrained in the thick concrete during the pour, especially as it moves past rebar? Jul 3, 2016 at 12:50

When concrete is mixed it has air trapped in the mix. When pouring walls we use vibrators to get the air out. With smaller pours hitting the forms with a hammer helps.
