STRUCTURES SUSTAINABLE CONCRETE SPECIFYING

2014-5-28  Concrete, in its simplest form, is made by mixing a cementitious binder, aggregates and water. This is then poured into a mould, or formwork, where it sets to form the dense, durable substance we know as concrete. The proportions and types of binder, aggregate and water can be changed and admixtures or fibres added to give different properties to the concrete either in its liquid or hardened state. Choosing the correct concrete specification for the location and function of the concrete is the essence of specifying sustainable
