Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures--the guide to applications, methods, and materials, has been the industry’s primary reference on concrete technology for over 90 years. The fully revised 16th edition published in 2016 by the Portland Cement Association (PCA) provides a concise, current reference on the fundamentals of concrete technology and construction.

Many advances have been made in concrete technology over the decades ranging from new materials and testing methods, to improved concrete properties and construction practices. Concrete construction today follows a mantra of quicker, stronger, more durable, more resilient, and more sustainable. That story is proudly displayed within the pages of this centennial edition of Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures.

The 16th edition provides a concise, current reference on concrete, including the many advances that occurred since the last edition. Besides presenting a 30 percent increase in new information, this edition has new chapters on concrete pavements and structures illustrating where concrete meets the needs of modern society.

The book is backed by 100 years of research by the Portland Cement Association. It reflects the latest information on standards, specifications, and test methods of ASTM International (ASTM), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

Each new edition reflects advances in concrete technology and the need to meet the growing needs of owners, architects, engineers, builders, concrete producers, concrete technologists, instructors, and students. Over 3 million copies of past editions of the book were distributed, making the book a primary reference on concrete technology.
