Guide to Concrete Construction

This guide provides guidance on concrete technology and appropriate construction techniques and processes used in concrete structures. The choice of materials will be influenced by local availability while the techniques employed to carry out the various processes eg curing will be influenced by the construction processes chosen. In each case consideration needs to be given to the ease with which the process can be carried out on site. This guide is divided into the following sections: constituents of concrete; manufacture and supply of concrete; concreting site practices; related site practices; and concrete properties; specifying; ordering and testing.
