The planning and design of concrete mixes for transporting, placing and finishing

Gordon Masterton, R A. Wilson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This book provides guidance on the fresh state rheological properties of concrete appropriate to a range of construction methods, operations and environments. It advises designers, specifiers, planners, concrete suppliers and contractors on how to achieve the required properties in practical conditions through appropriate mix design. Developments in construction techniques and in the constituent materials for use in concrete mean that concrete mix designs can be matched to the particular requirements of modern transporting and placing methods, in a wide range of locations and ambient conditions. This is fully covered in this report, with case studies to illustrate the principles involved.
