This primer is an attempt to develop in simple terms the principles governing concrete mixtures and to show how a knowledge of these principles and of the properties of cement can be applied to the production of permanent structures in concrete. No claim is made for completeness of detail, and even in presenting the fundamentals, the shortcomings of the method are recognized. The reader is referred to the many excellent texts and the wealth of technical papers and discussions for the answers to questions not found here.
