The following information on components of concrete and related subjects has been prepared as a practical study guide for techncians, batchers, inspectors, and contractor or producer personnel to help in preparing to become a Certified Concrete Field Technician. We have tried to make it as much a self-study guide as possible. The book has been arranged in the order it will be presented in our schools.
It should help serve as a source of information for the person starting in concrete work, as well as a reference book to those with considerable concrete construction experience. The objective is to train and educate so that the end results will be better quality concrete in the construction of our highways.
The information included in this book is generally compatible with current specifications and instructions; however, it should not be considered a specification. It should be used only as a guide and as a reference to supplement the reader's knowledge of concrete.
