This fully revised 17th edition was written to provide a concise, current reference on concrete, including the many developments that occurred since the last edition was published in 2016. The text is backed by over 100 years of research by the Portland Cement Association and other industry groups. It reflects the latest guidance on standards, specifications, and test methods of ASTM International (ASTM), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
The 17th edition includes an in-depth restructuring of the existing content, presenting a 40% increase in new information over the prior edition within the previous chapters. This edition also has added two new chapters on imperfections in concrete, and innovations in concrete.
Over 3 million copies of past editions of the book have been distributed, making this book a primary reference on concrete technology.
