A great need has existed for an in-depth handbook on concrete construction engineering and technology that can assist the constructor in making correct technical judgments in the various areas of constructed systems. This Handbook is intended to fill this very need. This edition is completely updated and includes ten new chapters written by leading experts on various topics dealing with the state of the art in several newly developed areas of concrete construction and design engineering. All chapters treat their particular subjects with extensive detail and depth of discussion, a feature that is lacking in any comparable texts.

Concrete Construction Engineering Handbook. The first edition of this comprehensive work quickly filled the need for an in-depth handbook on concrete construction engineering and technology. Living up to the standard set by its bestselling predecessor, this second edition of the Concrete Construction Engineering Handbook covers the entire range of issues pertaining to the construction and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.
Each chapter examines its topic with detail and depth of discussion and culminates with an extensive list of selected references for the user to consult beyond the scope of the handbook.
The thirty-seven contributors are national or international leaders in research, design, and construction with a combined professional practice of at least 1, years. The wealth of up-to-date knowledge they provide allows you to design constructed concrete structures that are vastly better, more efficient, and longer enduring. Chapter 2 Mineral Admixures.
