There are a number of major revisions reflecting increased knowledge of the subject. A separate chapter is devoted to each of the main types of concrete deterioration. Their mechanism is described and the requirements for materials, design, and construction procedures necessary to prevent damage to the concrete are given. A selected bibliography is included with each chapter.
