Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures--the guide to applications, methods, and materials, has been the industry's primary reference on concrete technology for over 85 years This fully revised 15th edition is a concise, current reference on concrete, that includes the many advances that occurred since the last edition was published in 2002. The text is backed by over 95 years of research by the Portland Cement Association. It reflects the latest information on standards, specifications, test methods and guides of ASTM International (ASTM), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA). This book presents the properties of concrete as needed in concrete construction, including strength and durability. All concrete ingredients (cementing materials, water, aggregates, chemical admixtures, and fibers) are reviewed for their optimal use in designing and proportioning concrete mixtures. The use of concrete from design to batching, mixing, transporting, placing, consolidating, finishing, and curing is addressed. Besides presenting a 30% increase in new information over the prior edition within the previous chapters, this edition has added four new chapters on concrete sustainability, reinforcement, properties of concrete, and durability. This comprehensive manual benefits personnel from ready-mixed concrete producers, concrete contractors, and material suppliers and is a reference publication for many national and state certification programs. Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures also meets the growing needs of architects, engineers, builders, and students. The 15th edition also includes a foreward by William F. Baker, PE, SE, FIStructE Partner, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP. This book is a "must have" for anyone involved with concrete.
