"Concrete Technology: Theory and Practice" gives students of Civil Engineering a thorough understanding of all aspects of concrete technology from first principles. It covers types of Cement, Admixtures, Concrete strength, durability and testing with reference to national standards.
For more than 30 years, the book has evolved to be a must-read for all students of the subject and has also been a useful reference book for practising engineers.

• Divided into 16 chapters, the book elucidates all theories in an apropos manner.
• Three new Chapters on "Production and Placing of Concrete", "Temperature Control of Concrete at Early Ages and Extreme Weather Concreting" and "Repair Technology for Concrete Structures"
• More than 900 figures, tables and references strengthen the well-explained theoretical concepts.
