This book provides a fundamental understanding of cement and concrete, presents an in-depth analysis of mixing and testing methods, and offers minimum coverage of theory. Although focusing mainly on Portland cement concrete, which is perhaps the most important material of modern building construction, the text also includes information on other hydraulic materials and additives with modern applications. This second edition features new chapters that cover the latest concrete technologies: high-performance and lightweight concrete. The author includes new tests and sample tear sheets, additional and updated data sheets in the appendix, and numerous updates throughout the text.
