The booklet starts with an creation to the houses of concrete. Concrete is a constructional fabric which is composed primarily of a binding agent and a mineral filler. The binding agent is a hydraulic cement which develops its energy while combined with water. Separate chapters conceal the manufacture and homes of concrete fabrics; combine layout, i.e. proportioning of assorted materials of concrete to supply the specified houses in either the plastic; concrete production; and qc. additionally mentioned are the resistance of concrete to deterioration, floor therapy of concrete, and distinct concretes.
