Abstract:
The eight edition of the Concrete Manual reflects the Bureau of Reclamation's continuing effort to provide information on the latest advances in concrete technology. Recognizing the precepts of good concrete practice do not change, continued research and development of the technology bring about significant improvements that keep concrete in the forefront as a versatile, dependable, and economical construction material. This eight edition of the Concrete Manual underscores this progress; it embraces substantial supplemental information relating to many of these improvements in concrete control and technology. The Concrete Manual contains the latest information on: concrete and concrete materials; durability; weathering resistance; resistance to chemical deterioration; resistance to erosion; thermal properties; elasticity; prospecting for aggregate materials; chemical suitability of aggregates; handling, placing, finishing, and curing of concrete and the repair and maintenance of concrete. Also included is a section devoted to special types of concrete and mortar.
