There are enlightened basic aspects of scientific concrete science. There is given summary of modern ideas about hardening and structure-forming of cement stone and concrete, rheological and technological properties of concrete mixes, strength, strain and other properties, which determine concrete operate reliability anddurability. There are considered basic types of normal weight cement concrete, lightweight and cellular concrete, non-cement mineral binders concrete, mortars. The book is addressed to students and post-graduate students of construction specialties of higher educational establishments, scientists and technologists.
