Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry's primary reference on concrete technology since the first U.S. edition was published in the early 1920s.

Content of this electronic version includes a Spanish translation of the 14th U.S. edition of Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures (EB001.14), which covers fundamentals and detailed information on freshly mixed and hardened concrete. It discusses materials for concrete, such as portland cements, supplementary cementing materials, aggregates, admixtures and fibers; air entrainment; procedures for mix proportioning, batching, mixing, transporting, handling, placing, consolidating, finishing, and curing concrete; precautions necessary during hot- and cold-weather concreting; causes and methods of controlling volume changes; commonly used control tests for quality concrete; special types of concrete, such as high-performance, lightweight, heavyweight, no-slump, roller-compacted, shotcrete, mass concrete and many more. In addition, extensive information on construction practices and standards used in Central and Latin America are included.

While the book focuses on construction terminology used in Mexico, synonyms have been added in parenthesis throughout the book to accommodate readers throughout Latin America. The appendix contains a concise list of synonyms used in this edition.

Includes a comprehensive glossary, links to cement and concrete resources on the web and metric conversions. Entire book is indexed and can be searched using keywords or phrases.

PowerPoint slides are available for each of the book's 18 chapters.

This electronic reference on concrete technology covers fundamentals and detailed information on freshly mixed and hardened concrete. Topics include portland cement manufacture, types (including blended hydraulic cements), and chemical composition. Cement fineness, soundness, setting time, compressive strength, and heat of hydration are also covered. Describes supplementary cementing materials such as fly ash, slag and silica fume. Gives tolerable impurity levels in mixing water. Discusses coarse- and fine-aggregate grading, shape and surface texture, unit weight, specific gravity, absorption, freeze-thaw resistance, abrasion resistance, alkali reactivity, and thermal properties. Effects of air-entraining admixtures, water-reducers, retarding admixtures, and accelerators. Properties of air-entrained concrete and factors affecting air content are also covered. Sections on proportioning from field data and trial mixtures give numerical examples. Effects of water-cement ratio, cement content, and air content are illustrated. Production topics include batching, mixing, transporting, and handling. Construction topics include forms, placing, vibration, finishing, jointing, and curing. Hot- and cold-weather concreting, including effects of temperature extremes on concrete properties. Volume changes caused by loads or by temperature or moisture content variations. Describes tests for slump, air content, temperature, and unit weight of fresh concrete, plus strength, durability, and permeability of hardened concrete. Nondestructive tests are also described. Special concretes are discussed; high-performance concretes are covered in detail. Applicable ASTM, AASHTO, ACI and Central and South American standards are referred to extensively. Eighteen chapters (as PDF and PowerPoint files) and a comprehensive index.

System requirements: Adobe Acrobat Reader 5+ with search plug-in (included on CD) and MSPowerPoint or equivalent program.

Esta referencia electrónica sobre la tecnología del concreto contiene fundamentos del concreto e información detallada sobre el concreto fresco y el concreto endurecido. El contenido incluye la fabricación del cemento portland, tipos de cemento (incluyendo cementos adicionados) y composición química. También se discute la finura del cemento, sanidad, tiempo de fraguado, resistencia a compresión y calor de hidratación. Se describen los materiales cementantes suplementarios, tales como la ceniza volante, la escoria y el humo de sílice. Los niveles tolerables de impurezas para el agua de mezcla se presentan. Se discuten los agregados fino y grueso, su forma y textura superficial, masa volumétrica, masa específica relativa, absorción, resistencia a congelación-deshielo, resistencia a abrasión, reactividad con álcalis y propiedades térmicas. Se cubren los efectos de los aditivos inclusores de aire, los reductores de agua, los retardadores y los aceleradores. También se cubren las propiedades de los concretos con aire incluido y los factores que afectan el contenido de aire. Se presentan secciones sobre el proporcionamiento de mezclas a través de datos de campo y de mezclas de prueba, a demás de ejemplos numéricos. Se muestran los efectos de la relación agua-cemento, del contenido de cemento y del contenido de aire. Los temas sobre la producción incluyen: dosificación, mezclado, transporte y manejo. Los temas de construcción incluyen: cimbras, colocación, vibración, acabado, juntas y curado. También se cubre el colocado en climas calurosos y fríos, incluyendo el efecto de las temperaturas extremas sobre las propiedades del concreto. Se presentan los cambios de volumen causados por cargas, por temperatura o por variación de humedad. Se describen los ensayos de revenimiento, contenido de aire, temperatura, masa unitaria del concreto fresco, además de la resistencia, durabilidad y la permeabilidad del concreto endurecido. También se describen los ensayos no destructivos. Se presentan concretos especiales; el concreto de alto desempeño se presenta detalladamente. Se hacen extensivas referencias a las normas ASTM, AASHTO, ACI y normas de Latino América. Dieciocho capítulos (en PDF y archivos de PowerPoint files) y un índice comprehensivo.

Requisitos de sistema: Adobe Acrobat Reader 5+ con búsqueda plug-in (que se incluye en el CD) y MSPowerPoint o un programa equivalente.
