Concrete combines aggregates, water, and cementing agent, generally portland cement.  Portland Cement is made from limestone and other minerals, which are ground up, mixed, burned in a kiln, and subsequently ground to a fine powder that will harden when mixed with water. The following topics will be covered; Portland Cement, Properties of Portland Cement Concrete, Basic Tests, Admixtures, Supplementary Cementing Materials, Materials, Mix Design, Trial Mixes, High-Strength Concrete, Mixing Placing and Curing, Concrete Pavements, Whitetopping, Inspection and Quality Control, and Special Concretes.
