Design and Control of CONCRETE ninciclopedia.org | Concrete | Elasticity (Physics)Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures The guide to applications, methods, and materials. Kosmatka and Michelle L. An organization of cement companies to improve and extend the uses of portland cement and concrete through market development, engineering, research, education, and public affairs work. Front Pgs. KEYWORDS: admixtures, aggregates, air-entrained concrete, batching, cement, cold weather, curing, durability, fibers, finishing, high-performance concrete, hot weather, mixing, mixing water, mixture proportioning, placing, portland cement concrete, properties, special concrete, standards, supplementary cementing materials, sustainability, tests, and volume changes. All concrete ingredients cementing materials, water, aggregates, 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.

PCA Releases 16th Edition of Design & Control of Concrete Mixtures
Proportioning Concrete Mixtures Overview marks the centennial anniversary of the Portland Cement Association. The book proportioned concrete for different applications using bulk volume relationships such as a mix 1 part cement: 2 parts sand: 3 parts gravel. For years, PCA has provided technical guidance to the concrete practitioner on how to design and control concrete mixtures. Many advances have been made in concrete technology over the decades ranging from new materials and testing methods, to improved concrete properties and construction practices. Concrete construction today follows a mantra of quicker, stronger, more durable, more resilient, and more sustainable. That story is proudly displayed within the pages of this centennial edition of Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures.
