This book has been rewritten to take account of the very significant changes in the knowledge and practice in the use of concrete. New material in this fourth edition (for abstract of third edition see IRRD 258918) include such topics as various cementitious materials, high performance concrete, recently introduced admixtures, concrete under cryogenic conditions, properties of the aggregate-matrix interface, and durability of concrete under extreme conditions particularly the behaviour of concrete under the extreme conditions in coastal areas of the hot parts of the world.

Chapter headings are: (1) Portland cement; (2) cementitous materials of different types; (3) properities of aggregate; (4) fresh concrete; (5) admixtures; (6) strength of concrete; (7) further aspects of hardened concrete; (8) temperature effects in concrete; (9) elasticity shrinkage and creep; (10) durability of concrete; (11) effects of freezing and thawing and of chlorides; (12) testing hardened concrete; (13) concretes with particular properties; (14) selection of concrete mix proportions (mix design).
