Since its first publication in 1963, Properties of Concrete has been
internationally acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on the
subject for both the professional and the student engineer. The book
has been translated into 12 languages and has sold well over half a
million copies
The fifth edition has been updated to reflect advances in concrete technology
over the past decade,
yet it still retains the original aim of Professor Neville's book: 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
throughout is on understanding the behaviour of concrete and relating it to
physical and chemical
phenomena involved in the performance of the material in service. The overall
effect is to give an
integrated view of the properties of concrete so as to enable the reader to
achieve the best possible
construction in concrete. In addition, the scientific basis of the information
provided is invaluable in
planning research and in the interpretation of test results.
