This book provides a general treatise covering precast concrete as a whole. It gives a comprehensive account of materials, properties, manufacture and usage.
Materials, processes, mix-designs, accelerated curing, performance, durablility and quality control, as well as repairs, are each discussed in their own right. Each section deals with a good practice approach and discusses at length the problems that can occur if such practice is not pursued.
This book gives useful information to those who want to learn, teach, specify, manufacture, use or be associated with precast concrete in virtually every aspect. Coupled with this the author ventures a gaze into the future as to the way he sees the industry developing.
