The Industry Standard Brought to Life
Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s primary reference on concrete technology, since PCA published the first U.S. edition in the early 1920s.
The current course, based on this industry standard, reflects the latest advances in concrete technology. The result: a fast-paced, eLearning program, developed especially for ready-mix concrete personnel who need fundamental yet practical concrete knowledge.
The course consists of more than 16 hours of instruction covering materials for concrete, mixing, transporting, placing, finishing, curing, and designing and proportioning concrete.

Cement and Its Impact on Concrete Performance
What’s your concrete performance issue? Hot- or cold-weather concerns? Workability? Setting time? Strength?
They can all be influenced by cement characteristics. The type of cement can also affect durability and how susceptible the concrete will be to sulfate attack and alkali-silica reaction.
Designed for engineers and other construction professionals involved in concrete construction, this six-part series on concrete and cement technology takes you through cement’s role in sustainability, cement types and applications, and how cement affects the performance of the final product.
Every industry has one outstanding reference book, and for concrete it is Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures—the guide to applications, methods, and materials.
