    Abstract

    The term concrete can be construed to include a considerable variety of products made from portland cement or other cementing media, but in this publication the term concrete usually refers to a material which was at first a plastic mixture (or mixture that became plastic as a result of manipulation, especially vibration) of portland cement, water, air, and mineral aggregate. Therefore, this discussion of the nature of concrete will have the scope indicated by that description.
