Chapter 2: The Nature of Concrete


T. C. POWERS AUTHORED THE FIRST VERSION OF this chapter, which was published in ASTM STP 169A in 1966. His chapter was reprinted without revision in ASTM STP 169B in 1978. In ASTM STP 169C (1994), Richard A. Helmuth condensed some of that work and included more recent material. The present version relies on the framework established by the earlier authors, while updating and adding to it.
