Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures 17th edition
This Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures 17th edition, presents the properties of concrete as needed in concrete construction, including strength and durability. All concrete ingredients (cementing materials, water, aggregates, admixtures, and fibers) are reviewed for their optimal use in designing and proportioning concrete mixtures. Applicable ASTM, AASHTO, and ACI standards are referred to extensively. The use of concrete from design to batching, mixing, transporting, placing, consolidating, finishing, and curing is addressed. Concrete sustainability, along with special concretes, including high-performance concretes, are also reviewed.
Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures, 17th Edition is the definitive guide for engineers, contractors, producers, instructors, and students. This new edition reflects the latest advances in concrete technology and highlights concrete’s contribution to sustainability.
- Provides guidance on all aspects of concrete technology from selection of suitable materials to designing and proportioning a concrete mixture.
