  • The book on Concrete Technology, first published in 1982, has seen seven editions and more than thirty-five reprints.
  • The book is popular with students, practicing and consulting engineers, and architects, in short, with all closely involved with concrete - the most important, versatile, and global construction material.
  • Seven years ago, since the first multicoloured edition of the book was brought out, the construction scenario has changed significantly and so too has concrete technology. Many new materials and new technologies have been introduced.
  • This seventh edition has been brought out to cater for the additional knowledge needed to take our concrete technology to the global level.
  • The use of chemical admixtures has become essential to improve the strength and durability. Its use has spread to common contractors and to rural areas. PC
  • based admixtures are the backbone materials for making high performance concrete. Minerals admixtures, such as fly ash, GGBs, Silicafume etc. needed additional information to make durable, economical, and greener concrete. All these are topics widely covered in this revised edition.
  • Our infrastructural projects involving, network of concrete roads, bridges, flyovers, irrigation projects, docks and harbours, high rise buildings involving deep foundations are in full swing. Concrete structures are becoming massive in
  • nature. It has become necessary to adopt mass concreting practices which involved mainly the thermal considerations. This aspects which have been neglected in the past, have been covered very elaborately in this edition.
  • Ready mixed concrete industries are spreading fast. This aspects, in particular, transporting, pumping, and placing of concrete have been given wider coverage.
  • On account of the revision IS 456 : 2000, the earlier guidelines in concrete Mix-Design IS 10262 : 1982 have become outdated. The BIS has brought out revised concrete Mix-Design code IS 10262 : 2009 which has not been disseminated to many engineering colleges and practicing engineers. In this edition, revised concrete Mix-Design has been included. Mix Design incorporating fly ash has also been added.
  • The latest durability tests such as RCPT and Water Penetration Tests as per ASTM and DIN standards have been added.
  • BIS have been circulating amendments to various clauses in IS 456 : 2000. In this seventh edition such amendments are incorporated wherever necessary.
