Concrete Technology

Concrete is a basic building material needed for many Civil Engineering projects. There is a great deal to this subject, from the types of different concrete mixtures, to curing concrete, methods of recycling it and more. Read articlees on concrete technology: how it’s made, what types are in use today and more.

Engineering Guide to Concrete: Best Practices

Concrete is a basic building block of our everyday world. It’s used in almost every type of structure that we build today. This engineering guide to concrete will give you a variety of information about concrete, including some best practices for various situations.

Using Ardex Concrete Resurfacer for Overlays

Proper preparation of the surface is the most important factor in achieving the bond between Ardex and the concrete surface being treated. No matter which topping or overlay is used to level, smooth, or repair a substrate’s surface, it will only be as strong as the surface to which it is bonded.

What the Romans Taught Us about Concrete

What the Romans taught us about concrete could fill a fairly thick book. The Romans learned that low water content and compaction are the keys to making extremely durable structures like the Pantheon, which still stands after 2,000 years.

Making Concrete Exposed Aggregate

Exposed aggregate concrete is normally used for terraces and walkways. It consists of the small stones fitted inthat improves the look and the strength. The common methods of its production are Surface Dressing and Washed to Expose.
