Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures: The Guide to Applications Methods and Materials 15th Edition- for free

Control of Concrete

There is a new material being used in architecture today. It is called “concrete.” Recent advances in mix design and placing techniques have created a material with properties that could only be dreamed of a few years ago. The changes have been so profound that concrete almost deserves a new name.

Today, when we use the word concrete, we are talking about a very different material than the gray material most people think of. The strength, stiffness, work ability, and durability of modern concrete are expanding the uses of this material and opening up new opportunities in design.

Concrete has become the material of choice for many building and infrastructure projects in the United States and around the world. This trend is particularly evident in the area of high-rise construction. The majority of high-rise buildings being designed and constructed today feature either primary structural systems using only concrete or composite systems using concrete and steel.

About the Book

Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s leading reference book on concrete technology for more than 85 years. Since its first publication in the early 1920s, the U.S. edition has reflected advances in concrete technology and architects, It has been revised 15 times to reflect advances in concrete technology and to meet the growing needs of architects, engineers, contractors, concrete manufacturers, concrete technicians, instructors, and students.

This fully revised 15th edition has been written to provide a concise, up-to-date reference work on concrete, including the many advances that have occurred since the last edition was published in 2002. The text is backed by over 95 years of research by the Portland Cement Association, ASTM International (ASTM), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and American Concrete Institute (ACI) standards, specifications, and test methods.
