Focuses on cementitious materials in Portland cement concrete and describes state-of-the-art microscopic techniques for characterizing cementitious materials and hardened concrete. 9 peer-reviewed paper demonstrate the wide ranging potential of petrography as a tool in investigation of cement and concrete properties and performance. Fully illustrated; color photographs throughout.
