This book presents a unified view of concrete behavior in light of a body of chemical and physical principles. It provides the most up-to-date information available on new concrete materials. The most up-to-date information on new concrete materials. SI units used as primary system, keeping readers current to the unit system being adopted in the United States. Latest ASTM specifications are included. Exercises at the end of each chapter. An excellent resource for professionals in this industry.

From the BackCover: Much progress has been made in many areas of concrete technology since the publication of the first edition of Concrete. For those familiar with the first edition, very little has been removed, while the chapters on cements, aggregates, chemical admixtures, concrete construction practices, and durability have undergone major revision. In addition, the text now contains new, separate chapters on mineral admixtures - high-strength concrete - cement-polymer composites - fiber-reinforced concrete. As in the first edition, the authors present a unified view of concrete behavior based on basic principles. The material on workability of concrete is prefaced by a general discussion of the principle of rheology; mechanical properties are discussed from the point of view of concrete as a multiphase material; and the underlying chemistry of hydration and microstructure of hardened cement paste are emphasized. The result is a cohesive presentation of practical applications supported by detailed background information, which serves both the undergraduate and the practicing professional engineer.

ASTM C 94 covers the complex subject of ready-mixed concrete. This manual, co-published by ASTM International and the National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association, provides a complete and detailed explanation of C 94's uses and applications. It cuts through the broad language of the standard by using straightforward explanations and examples.

 Twenty comprehensive chapters plus an overview cover: • Background of ASTM C 94/C 94M • Scope • Referenced Documents • Basis of Purchase • Ordering Information • Materials • Tolerances in Slump • Air-Entrained Concrete • Measuring Materials • Batching Plant • Mixers and Agitators • Mixing and Delivery • Uses of Nonagitating Equipment • Batch Ticket Information • Plant Inspection • Practices, Test Methods, and Reporting • Sampling and Testing Fresh Concrete • Failure to Meet Strength Requirements • Keywords • Annex of Mandatory Information

Get a detailed explanation of HOW & WHY one steel is comparable to another—NO OTHER BOOK currently on the market does this;

Completely UPDATED and REVISED, the new edition includes over: • 1,000 new and updated alloys • 1,700 data changes • 5,000 alloys listed from 350 worldwide standards • Expanded table of contents and 4 subject indexes Additionally, Chapter 5 on Pipes and Tubes has been completely rewritten and reorganized. Recently revised A 240 stainless steels that now pertains to pressure vessel and general applications have been added to Chapter 8 on Wrought Stainless Steels, but are also still listed in Chapter 4 on Pressure Vessel Steel Plates. Also, there has been a significant increase of EN standards replacing former national European and UK standards. This publication assists the reader by grouping comparable steels based on their chemical composition and/or mechanical properties according to a detailed set of rules outlined in the first chapter. It also takes into account product form, application, and type of service, and aids in finding the new CEN standards that have replaced former national standards from Europe and the UK. This has changed dramatically since the publication of the 2002 edition. This product includes: • Criteria for comparing steels, including examples of the comparison process • Updated! Defining the rules of comparison, including the list of comparison rules—includes changes in this edition • Updated! Non-comparable steels (not all steels have comparable counterparts) —expanded in this edition; with new EN standards, former non-comparable steels are now comparable and vice versa. • Designation systems of ASTM, SAE, UNS, and CSA are explained with lots of examples. • Introduction to European (EN) standard steel designation systems, including steel names and steel numbers. • Latest designation changes from DIN, BSI, and AFNOR to their new CEN designations. • And Much More!

Nineteen peer-reviewed papers address the latest issues affecting the resilient modulus test and use of the test results. Resilient modulus indicates the stiffness of a soil under controlled confinement conditions and repeated loading. The test is intended to simulate the stress conditions that occur in the base and subgrade of a pavement system. Papers cover: • Repeatability of the test by testing replicated test specimens under the same conditions. • Background of test startup and QC procedures • Review of the LTPP test program • Effect of water content and pore water pressure buildup on the resilient modulus of unsaturated and saturated cohesive soils • Importance of the value of resilient modulus on required pavement thickness This book is a valuable resource for highway engineers, geotechnical engineers, laboratory personnel who conduct pavement tests, pavement designers, and foundation engineers.
