Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete
industry’s primary reference on concrete knowledge for almost 100 years. Since
the first edition was published in 1924, the U.S. version has been updated 16
times to reflect advances in cement and concrete technology and to meet the
growing needs of architects, engineers, builders, concrete producers, concrete
technologists, instructors, and students.
This fully revised 17th edition was written to provide
a concise, current reference on concrete, including the many developments that
occurred since the last edition was published in 2016. The text is backed by
over 100 years of research by the Portland Cement Association and other industry
groups. It reflects the latest guidance 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
The 17th edition includes an in-depth restructuring of
the existing content, presenting a 40% increase in new information over the
prior edition within the previous chapters. This edition also has added two new
chapters on imperfections in concrete, and innovations in concrete.
Over 3 million
copies of past editions of the book have been distributed, making this book a
primary reference on concrete technology.
