Description

The Guide to Application, Methods, and Materials

Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s primary reference on concrete technology, since the first U.S. edition was published in the mid 1920s.


This revised 8th Canadian edition is a concise and current reference covering the fundamentals of freshly mixed and hardened concrete. New to this edition are chapters discussing the impacts of concrete's role on sustainable development, and the design of durable concrete. Tables and figures from the 7th edition have been updated as well.
