Concrete Admixtures Handbook: Properties, Science and Technology (Building Materials Science Series) 2nd Edition by V.S. Ramachandran (Author) ISBN Cited by: Concrete. Concrete is a construction material that consists of cement, commonly Portland cement, aggregate (generally gravel and sand) and water. Concrete solidifies and hardens after mixing and placement due to a chemical process known as hydration. An extensive bibliography is included. The book is a current, organized summary of knowledge concerning concrete-making materials, which will enable the engineer/user to make the best possible product using these materials. Download Materials Science Books – We have compiled a list of Best & Standard Reference Books on Material Science books are used by students of top universities, institutes and interdisciplinary field of materials science, also commonly termed materials science and engineering, involves the discovery and design of new materials, with an emphasis on solids.

The Materials Science of Concrete series aims to bridge the gap between the research community for concrete and the world of practical applications. Each volume features several chapters, written by leading researchers and product developers, which focus on selected basics of cement chemistry and concrete technology. Concrete is explored as a Price: $ The International Journal of Concrete Structures and Materials (IJCSM) provides a forum targeted for engineers and scientists around the globe to present and discuss various topics related to concrete, concrete structures and other applied materials incorporating cement cementitious binder, and polymer or fiber in conjunction with concrete. These forums give participants an opportunity to.

Phrases such as Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Steel Age are historic, if arbitrary examples. Originally deriving from the manufacture of ceramics and its putative derivative metallurgy, materials science is one of the oldest forms of engineering and applied science. Modern materials science evolved directly from metallurgy.
