Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures - PCA


Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s primary reference on concrete technology for over 85 years. Since the first edition was published in the early 1920s, the U.S. version has been updated 15 times to reflect advances in concrete technology and to meet the growing needs of architects, engineers, builders, concrete producers, concrete technologists, instructors, and students

This fully revised 15th edition was written to provide a concise, current reference on concrete, including the many advances that occurred since the last edition was published in 2002. The text is backed by over 95 years of research by the Portland Cement Association. It reflects the latest information on standards, specifica-
tions, and test methods of ASTM International (ASTM), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

Besides presenting a 30% increase in new information over the prior edition within the previous chapters, this edition has added four new chapters on concrete sustainability, reinforcement, properties of concrete, and durability.
