Concrete technology theory and practice by M.S. Shetty

Concrete technology theory and practice by M.S. Shetty.

Concrete technology is becoming a major subject in civil engineering. It is becoming the backbone
of infrastructural developments of every country. It has made tremendous advancement in the western and the eastern world. Though India is lagging behind, we are catching up fast with the rest of the world.

The quantity of concrete and other cement products made, utilising over 120 million tons of cement
to cater for the tremendous infrastructural development that is taking place in the country, is making the concrete industry one of the biggest in monetary terms. Western and Eastern countries have been making concrete of strength M40, M80, M100 and over. In the recent past, we in India have started using concrete of strength M30, M50 and even M75. We have a long way to go to learn and practice the art and science of making High Performance Concrete (HPC) yet. The recent revision of IS 456, code of practice for plain and reinforced concrete is guiding concrete technologists to make strong and durable concrete.

Major revision has been carried out in Fifthand Sixth Edition. Topics, such as blended cements, use
of admixtures and their use, field trials to find out their suitability, compatibility and dosage, RMe, pumping of concrete, latest methods mix design step by step, and extensive unconventional deliberation on durability, have been included.TABLE OF CONTENT IN THIS BOOK
