This ACI volume provides engineers, contractors, and architects insight into the problems and solutions associated with high quality concrete construction. The infrastructure can not be built too well, and what little extra it may take to build in that extra assured quality is an investment of high return. Quality is often talked about--but follow through is often lacking. Concrete and Concrete Construction, a collection of 16 papers, explores in detail the various steps involved in assuring the best possible results. Topics covered include: improving concrete quality with silica fume, design for strength variability, how to obtain quality concrete, under water concreting, curing of concrete, effects of construction practice on concrete-steel bond, and consolidation of concrete. In addition, subjects such as controlling concrete during hot and cold weather, and code requirements for crack control are covered extensively.
