About the BookContent

An attempt has been made by the author in this book to provide the basic principles and sufficient

information on the state of art relating to all facets of manufacturing and production

processes in the making of structural concrete. To cater to the needs of the undergraduate level

courses, more emphasis is laid on the fundamentals and practice.

In addition to the traditional concrete technology topics dealing with the principles of concrete

and concrete – making materials, the current state of the art of self compacting concrete, special

concretes, concreting techniques, non-destructive testing (NDT), repairs and strengthening of

concrete structures, fly ash concrete, etc. has been included.

The book incorporates relevant information on numerous Indian standard specifications and

code of practices relating to cement and concrete including the latest revision of IS : 456–2000.

The entire subject matter is canvassed in the chapters like Cement; Types of Cement; Testing

of Cement; Aggregates; Water for Construction; Admixtures; Fresh Concrete; Production of

Concrete; Strength of Concrete; Elasticity, Creep and Shrinkage; Durability of Concrete; Testing

of Hardened Concrete; Quality Control of Concrete; Concrete Mix Design; Special Concretes

and Concreting Techniques; Repair and Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures; Fly Ash Concrete.

The book now Contains:

* 187 Self-explanatory and neat diagrams

* 117 Useful tables

* 20 Worked Examples

* 192 Short Questions with Answers

* 204 Objective Questions

* 224 Exercise Questions

The book should prove to be extremely useful to the Civil and Structural Engineering students

preparing for the Degree Examinations of all the Indian Universities, Diploma Examinations

conducted by various Boards of Technical Education, Certificate Courses as well as for the

A.M.I.E., U.P.S.C., G.A.T.E., I.E.S. and other similar competitive and professional examinations.

It should also prove of interest to the practising professionals.
