The fifth edition has been updated to reflect advances in concrete technology over the past decade without losing sight of the original aim: to provide reliable, comprehensive and practical information on the properties and use of concrete, and the selection of mix proportions all based on scientific observations and the author’s extensive engineering experience.


The emphasis is on understanding the behaviour of concrete and relating it to physical and chemical phenomena involved in its performance in service, so that you can achieve the best possible construction in concrete. Also, the scientific basis of the information provided is invaluable in planning research and in the interpretation of test results.

Adam Neville is a renowned international authority on concrete and author or co-author of nine other books, the latest of which are Neville on Concrete and Concrete: Neville’s Insights and Issues, as well as over 250 research and technical papers. He has very extensive international experience as a consultant and investigator of proble...
