Description

This second edition of Concrete Technology provides a comprehensive coverage of the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject and includes the latest developments in the field of concrete construction. It incorporates the latest Indian Standard specifications and codes regulating concrete construction.

The book introduces the properties of concrete and its constituent materials and discusses the role of various admixtures in modifying these properties to suit specific requirements. Topics such as ready mixed concrete, reinforcement detailing, and concrete machinery have been treated exhaustively. Also discussed in detail are special concretes such as high-performance concrete, polymer concrete, and fibre-reinforced concrete in addition to the durability, maintenance, and quality control of concrete structures. An entire chapter has been devoted to concrete structures in special environmental conditions. The book concludes with a discussion on the future trends in concrete technology.
