Aggregates in concrete

Product code: SPON 42
Brand: Taylor & Francis
Bringing together in one volume the latest research and information, this book provides a detailed guide to the selection and use of aggregates in concrete. After an introduction defining the purpose and role of aggregates in concrete, the authors present an overview of aggregate sources and production techniques, followed by a detailed study of their physical, mechanical and chemical properties. This knowledge is then applied to the use of aggregates in both plastic and hardened concretes, and in the overall mix design. Special aggregates and their applications are discussed in detail, as are the current main specifications, standards and tests.Mark Alexander, University of Cape Town, South Africa and Sidney Mindess, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
