View all copies of this ISBN edition:

An invaluable resource for concrete technologists, as well as graduate and advanced undergraduate students of Civil Engineering. This book details the manufacture, setting and hardening, reaction products, structure of the hardened matrix, and degradation processes in a variety of inorganic cements.

Portland cements, because of their over-riding importance in civil construction, are the main focus of this book, but it gives you the tools to analyse inorganic cements in general. It also looks at supplementary cementing materials, calcium aluminate cements, magnesium cements, phosphate cements and cement polymer composites in some detail. The latest ideas and concepts in the field are outlined, as are the major methods of characterization used in the cement industry.
