About the book
HAND BOOK ON ADVANCED CONCRETE TECHNOLOGY provides updated information on materials and other aspects of concrete. It covers all types of concretes: Normal, High Strength, Self Compacting Concrete; Light weight, Heavy weight, Porous, Underwater Concrete; Cold, Hot Weather Concrete; Fibre Reinforced, Polymer, Roller Compacted Concrete; Foam, Acid Resistance Concrete and their characteristics. It provides guidelines on production, placement, compaction, curing, testing including Non-destructive Testing and Repairs of Concrete.
This Handbook consolidates in a single volume various types of concrete, experience and insights of experts of concrete technology and will help in production of durable, economical and sustainable concrete.
