Note: 304R-00 is Out of Print. However, a PDF version is available.

This guide presents information on the handling, measuring, and batching of all the materials used in making normalweight, lightweight structural, and heavyweight concrete. It covers both weight and volumetric measuring; mixing in central mixture plants and truck mixers; and concrete placement using buckets, buggies, pumps, and conveyors. Underwater concrete placement and preplaced aggregate concrete are also covered in this guide, as well as procedures for achieving good quality concrete in completed structures.
