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.

The sixth edition of PCA's Concrete Masonry Handbook for Architects, Engineers, Builders reflects the state-of-the-practice for concrete masonry construction presented in a revised layout style. More than 200 color photos describe designing and building with concrete masonry. Like the previous version, this handbook contains nine chapters, giving comprehensive coverage to materials - from units, to mortar, to grout. The chapters on design and construction provide an introduction to the structural behavior of masonry elements, including the types of loads acting on structures, how loads are carried, key components of masonry walls, and a detailed description of placing masonry. Includes information on applications for concrete masonry structures, finishes such as paint and plaster, more than 40 details of masonry sections, and a brand new glossary.

This expanded fourth edition describes the design, construction, and repair of concrete floors on ground for a variety of floor classifications. The approach described emphasizes attaining the best possible balance among service requirements, cost, and maintenance. In addition to an updated thickness design procedure, the text includes a discussion of concrete drying, shrinkage, joint stability, floor flatness and levelness, moisture testing and floor coverings, concrete durability, floor maintenance and repair, special floor types including white concrete floors, and a glossary of slab-on-ground terms.

Unwanted moisture in concrete floors annually causes millions of dollars in damage to buildings in the United States. Problems from excessive moisture include deterioration and de-bonding of floor coverings, trip-and-fall hazards, microbial growth leading to reduced indoor air quality, staining, and deterioration of building finishes. Understanding moisture in concrete leads to design of floors and flooring systems that provide excellent service for many years. This publication discusses sources of moisture, drying of concrete, methods of measuring moisture, construction practices, specifications, and responsibilities for successful floor projects. The second edition incorporates a brief discussion of terrazzo issues, an extended discussion of issues with ASTM F1869 moisture emission testing, additional references on drying times of lightweight concrete, and updates to the sources of supplies and standards.

This publication is a basic guide outlining the standard practices and procedures for planning, building, and finishing interior or exterior concrete flatwork (sidewalks, driveways, patios, floors) and steps. It supercedes the PCA Cement Mason's Guide. With expanded information pertaining to material selection and construction practices, it supplies the reader with a wealth of new information.

While intended primarily for concrete finishers and concrete finisher apprentices, the information contained in this guide will benefit homebuilders, contractors, architects, engineers, landscape architects, homeowners, vocational education students, specification writers, inspectors, and others.

The recommendations given here are based on current best practices and technical information (provided in both metric and inch-pound to allow for use in government projects as well as public works). Note: Material selection, construction practices and safety regulations for heavy commercial and industrial applications are beyond the scope of this document.

Mass concrete has been historically associated with large structures such as dams and other large volume placements. However, due to the increasingly common use of fast-track construction practices and high-performance concretes with high cementitious material contents, mass concrete issues are being encountered in typical bridge and building placements.

This document provides practical guidance on understanding mass concrete, how to manage concrete temperatures, and prevent or minimize temperature-related cracking. Understanding the implications of using mass concrete (high internal temperatures and temperature-related cracking) is the key to producing a structure that provides many years of service.
