Concrete Technology Is An All-Inclusive Book Designed For Students From British And American Universities. To Make A Successful Concrete Structure, One Needs To Have In-Depth Knowledge Of Concrete And How It Behaves Under Temperature, Load, And Humidity Changes. Moreover, It Is Crucial To Learn The Basics Of Concrete Technology And Know The Behavior Of Concrete When It Is Exposed To Various Industrial And Environmental Conditions. J. J. Brooks And A. M. Neville'S Concrete Technology Is Designed To Provide A Complete Understanding Of Several Aspects Of Concrete Design And Technology, Right From Its Basic Principles. The Numerous Topics Covered In This Book Are Concrete Ingredients, Properties And Behavior Of Concrete In Finished Structures, Concrete As A Structural Material, Admixtures, Temperature Problems In Concreting, Strength Of Concrete, Elasticity And Creep, Strength Properties, Testing, Compliance With Specifications, Special Concretes, Permeability And Durability, Resistance To Freezing And Thawing, And Relevant American And British Standards.

One Of The Salient Features Of Concrete Technology Is That It Is A Precise Book Consisting Of Limited Material Required By The Students. It Provides The Condensed Version Of The Well Known Properties Of Concrete. The Authors Have Included Many Examples And Problems To Highlight The Vital Aspects Of Each Chapter. This Is A Brilliant Reference Book For Students Of Structural Engineering And Civil Engineering At Diploma As Well As The Degree Level. This Is Also A Relevant Book For Practicing Engineers In The Field. The Increasing Cases Of Failure Of Concrete Structures In Recent Years Clearly Indicate That The Professional Engineer Is Lacking The Required Knowledge About Concrete. It Is Important For An Engineer To Know The Correct Ingredients For Concrete Mixing To Ensure The Suitable Mix. And, Concrete Technology Is A Complete Book That Provides That Required Data For Working Engineers.
