Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures, 17th Edition 

Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s primary reference on concrete knowledge for almost 100 years. Since the first edition was published in 1924, the U.S. version has been updated 16 times to reflect advances in cement and concrete technology and to meet the growing needs of architects, engineers, builders, concrete producers, concrete technologists, instructors, and students.

This fully revised 17th edition was written to provide a concise, current reference on concrete, including the many developments that occurred since the last edition was published in 2016. The text is backed by over 100 years of research by the Portland Cement Association and other industry groups. It reflects the latest guidance 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).

The 17th edition includes an in-depth restructuring of the existing content, presenting a 40% increase in new information over the prior edition within the previous chapters. This edition also has added two new chapters on imperfections in concrete, and innovations in concrete.

Over 3 million copies of past editions of the book have been distributed, making this book a primary reference on concrete technology.

Print editions will be shipped every Friday

Note: Electronic versions of Design & Control Concrete Mixtures, 17th Edition are not available for resale
