This primer is an attempt to develop in simple terms the principles governing concrete mixtures and to show how a knowledge of these principles and of the properties of cement can be applied to the production of permanent structures in concrete. Presented in a question and answer format, this 4th edition of the Concrete Primer covers a wide range of topics including: cement, mortar, concrete, strength of concrete, air entrainment, admixtures, proportioning procedures and metric conversion tables.
