About The Book Concrete Technology (Theory And Practice) by M S Shetty
Book Summary:

The book deals with several aspects of concrete technology and also covers the latest developments that have taken place in India and abroad. The coverage is comprehensive and complete. The properties of the constituent materials of concrete have been explained very lucidly in the text. The information on admixtures and on special concretes, such as air-entrained concrete, vacuum concrete, light-weight concrete, and gap-graded concrete, will be very useful to concrete engineers and those engaged in precast concrete construction. At many places in the text, the author touches upon some important, down-to-earth problems and gives specific recommendations based on his own knowledge and vast experience. The chapter on mix design gives simple and scientific procedures for the benefit of practicing engineers and concrete technologists. 

This book is written mainly to give practical bias into concrete-making practices to students of engineering and site engineers.

Key Features:

One of the welcome features of this book is the inclusion of detailed information on recent developments relating to fibre-reinforced concrete, sulphur-impregnated concrete, and different types of polymer concrete. The author has highlighted the potential of these new materials and has laid emphasis on the need for further research.

The text has been written in simple language and is supplemented by numerous illustrative examples, charts, and tables. The author has succeeded in presenting all the relevant information on concrete technology in a very effective manner. I am sure the book will be well received by students of concrete technology as well as practicing engineers and research workers.
