This paper outlines the current state of knowledge as regards the chemical and physical aspects of the structure of hardened cement paste, then relates the properties of shrinkage, inelastic behavior, and creep to structure. Some significant recent developments in materials for concrete production are presented. New materials include (a) two types of matrices: expansive cement and regulated set cement, (b) two types of reinforcements: fiber reinforcements and ferrocement, and (c) two types of polymeric additions: polymer latex modified mortar and polymer impregnated concrete. Artificial aggregates including possible use of waste products and special techniques for preparation of extremely high strength cement pastes are also discussed.
