Design and control of concrete mixtures by Steven H Kosmatka( Book )

53 editions published between 1925 and 2016 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the properties of concrete as needed in concrete construction, including strength and durability. All concrete ingredients (cementing materials, water, aggregates, admixtures, and fibers) are reviewed for their optimal use in designing and proportioning concrete mixtures. Applicable to ASTM, AASHTO, and ACI standards are referred to extensively. The use of concrete from design to batching, mixing, transporting, placing, consolidating, finishing, and curing is addressed. Special concretes, including high-performance concretes, are also reviewed

Prescriptive method for insulating concrete forms in residential construction( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) are hollow blocks, planks, or panels made from rigid foam plastic insulation or from composites of cement and other mateterals and which have the ability to act as forms for cast-in-place concrete walls. While gaining in popularity as an alternative to light-frame construction, the lack of consistent and comprehensive standards has prevented ICF systems from reaching their full potential among builders and officials who may be unfamiliar with this construction technique

The Portland Cement Association's guide to concrete homebuilding systems by Pieter A VanderWerf( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When lumber prices soared in 1992 and 1993, innovative contractors and architects began to explore alternative building methods, leading some to experiment with the new concrete homebuilding systems. Many were surprised to discover that not only did CHS homes measure up to traditional wood-frame houses, they outperformed them in many areas. And despite the reputation of concrete-based homes of the past, these amazing new CHS homes can be aesthetically breathtaking." "The advantages of CHS homes are compelling and undeniable: CHS homes are, in many cases, cheaper and easier to build than frame homes. Quality control is more easily achieved because much of the work is done in advance, away from the construction site. CHS homes survive disasters such as fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and floods far better than their wood frame counterparts. They are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wood-intensive construction methods. They are more energy efficient. CHS homes offer a wide range of novel and aesthetically striking designs." "The result of a study of CHS techniques for several trade associations, this one-of-a-kind book thoroughly examines what may be the construction archetype of the next century. After presenting the advantages of CHS, it provides an in-depth discussion of factors to consider in choosing from among mortared block, mortarless block, poured concrete, or sprayed concrete." "Other areas explored thoroughly here include materials, labor, and supervision costs; CHS product and labor availability; project logistics; market appeal of CHS homes; and the important decision of when to make the CHS leap and where to build what is sure to become an eye-catching showcase." "Reviewed by trade association experts for technical accuracy, this incomparable book draws heavily from actual builders' real-world experiences with CHS homes."--Jacket
