US$ 189.95

This general treatise on precast concrete reflects Maurice Levitt’s extensive experience in the construction industry and as a researcher and consultant. It gives detailed coverage of the subject from the material's properties through its manufacture and quality control, and on to specialist topics such as accelerated curing and use in hot and cold climates. It then looks at the properties of precast concrete and its performance in situ before covering standards and testing and then the issues of finishing, repair and jointing.

A wide range of professionals in both the civil engineering and general construction sectors should find this an invaluable reference for its guidance on the range of practical questions they can expect to encounter. It will also be useful for students at graduate level.
