Based on the Institute of Concrete Technology's Advanced Concrete Technology Course, these four volumes are a comprehensive educational and reference resource for the concrete materials technologist. An expert international team of authors from research, academia and industry has been brought together to produce this unique series. Each volume deals with a different aspect of the subject: constituent materials, properties, processes and testing and quality. With worked examples, case studies and illustrations throughout, the books will be a key reference for the concrete specialist for years to come.

Key Features

  • Expert international authorship ensures the series is authoritative
  • Case studies and worked examples help the reader apply their knowledge to practice
  • Comprehensive coverage of the subject gives the reader all the necessary reference material


Practitioners in the concrete and cement industry. Academics and postgraduate students of civil engineering and related subjects
