Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement cement paste that hardens cures over time. In the past, lime based cement binders, such as lime putty, were often used but sometimes with other hydraulic cements , such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete named for its visual resemblance to Portland stone. When aggregate is mixed with dry Portland cement and water , the mixture forms a fluid slurry that is easily poured and molded into shape.

The cement reacts with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses. Most concrete is poured with reinforcing materials such as rebar embedded to provide tensile strength , yielding reinforced concrete. Because concrete cures which is not the same as drying , how concrete is handled after it is poured is just as important as before.

Concrete is one of the most frequently used building materials. Its usage worldwide, ton for ton, is twice that of steel, wood, plastics, and aluminum combined. Concrete is distinct from mortar. Whereas concrete is itself a building material, mortar is a bonding agent that typically holds bricks , tiles and other masonry units together.

The word concrete comes from the Latin word " concretus " meaning compact or condensed , [9] the perfect passive participle of " concrescere ", from " con -" together and " crescere " to grow. Small-scale production of concrete-like materials was pioneered by the Nabatean traders who occupied and controlled a series of oases and developed a small empire in the regions of southern Syria and northern Jordan from the 4th century BC.

They discovered the advantages of hydraulic lime , with some self-cementing properties, by BC. They built kilns to supply mortar for the construction of rubble masonry houses, concrete floors, and underground waterproof cisterns. They kept the cisterns secret as these enabled the Nabataeans to thrive in the desert. In the Ancient Egyptian and later Roman eras, builders discovered that adding volcanic ash to the mix allowed it to set underwater. Concrete floors were found in the royal palace of Tiryns , Greece, which dates roughly to — BC.

Its widespread use in many Roman structures , a key event in the history of architecture termed the Roman architectural revolution , freed Roman construction from the restrictions of stone and brick materials.

It enabled revolutionary new designs in terms of both structural complexity and dimension. Concrete, as the Romans knew it, was a new and revolutionary material. Laid in the shape of arches , vaults and domes , it quickly hardened into a rigid mass, free from many of the internal thrusts and strains that troubled the builders of similar structures in stone or brick.

Modern tests show that opus caementicium had as much compressive strength as modern Portland-cement concrete ca. Modern structural concrete differs from Roman concrete in two important details. First, its mix consistency is fluid and homogeneous, allowing it to be poured into forms rather than requiring hand-layering together with the placement of aggregate, which, in Roman practice, often consisted of rubble.

Second, integral reinforcing steel gives modern concrete assemblies great strength in tension, whereas Roman concrete could depend only upon the strength of the concrete bonding to resist tension. The widespread use of concrete in many Roman structures ensured that many survive to the present day. The Baths of Caracalla in Rome are just one example. Many Roman aqueducts and bridges, such as the magnificent Pont du Gard in southern France, have masonry cladding on a concrete core, as does the dome of the Pantheon.

After the Roman Empire collapsed, use of concrete became rare until the technology was redeveloped in the midth century. Worldwide, concrete has overtaken steel in tonnage of material used.

After the Roman Empire, the use of burned lime and pozzolana was greatly reduced. Low kiln temperatures in the burning of lime, lack of pozzolana, and poor mixing all contributed to a decline in the quality of concrete and mortar.

From the 11th century, the increased use of stone in church and castle construction led to an increased demand for mortar. Quality began to improve in the 12th century through better grinding and sieving. Medieval lime mortars and concretes were non-hydraulic and were used for binding masonry, "hearting" binding rubble masonry cores and foundations.

Bartholomaeus Anglicus in his De proprietatibus rerum describes the making of mortar. In an English translation from , it reads "lyme From the 14th century, the quality of mortar was again excellent, but only from the 17th century was pozzolana commonly added. The Canal du Midi was built using concrete in Perhaps the greatest step forward in the modern use of concrete was Smeaton's Tower , built by British engineer John Smeaton in Devon, England, between and This third Eddystone Lighthouse pioneered the use of hydraulic lime in concrete, using pebbles and powdered brick as aggregate.

A method for producing Portland cement was developed in England and patented by Joseph Aspdin in His son William continued developments into the s, earning him recognition for the development of "modern" Portland cement.

Reinforced concrete was invented in by Joseph Monier. The first concrete reinforced bridge was designed and built by Joseph Monier in Concrete is a composite material, comprising a matrix of aggregate typically a rocky material and a binder typically Portland cement or asphalt , which holds the matrix together.

Many types of concrete are available, determined by the formulations of binders and the types of aggregate used to suit the application for the material. These variables determine strength and density, as well as chemical and thermal resistance of the finished product. Aggregate consists of large chunks of material in a concrete mix, generally a coarse gravel or crushed rocks such as limestone , or granite , along with finer materials such as sand.

A cement , most commonly Portland cement, is the most prevalent kind of concrete binder. For cementitious binders, water is mixed with the dry powder and aggregate, which produces a semi-liquid slurry that can be shaped, typically by pouring it into a form.

The concrete solidifies and hardens through a chemical process called hydration. The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together, creating a robust, stone-like material. Other cementitious materials, such as fly ash and slag cement , are sometimes added—either pre-blended with the cement or directly as a concrete component—and become a part of the binder for the aggregate.

Admixtures are added to modify the cure rate or properties of the material. Mineral admixtures use recycled materials as concrete ingredients. Conspicuous materials include fly ash , a by-product of coal-fired power plants ; ground granulated blast furnace slag , a byproduct of steelmaking ; and silica fume , a byproduct of industrial electric arc furnaces. Structures employing Portland cement concrete usually include steel reinforcement because this type of concrete can be formulated with high compressive strength , but always has lower tensile strength.

Therefore, it is usually reinforced with materials that are strong in tension, typically steel rebar. Other materials can also be used as a concrete binder: the most prevalent alternative is asphalt , which is used as the binder in asphalt concrete.

The mix design depends on the type of structure being built, how the concrete is mixed and delivered, and how it is placed to form the structure. Portland cement is the most common type of cement in general usage. It is a basic ingredient of concrete, mortar , and many plasters. British masonry worker Joseph Aspdin patented Portland cement in It was named because of the similarity of its color to Portland limestone , quarried from the English Isle of Portland and used extensively in London architecture.

It consists of a mixture of calcium silicates alite , belite , aluminates and ferrites —compounds which combine calcium, silicon, aluminum and iron in forms which will react with water. Portland cement and similar materials are made by heating limestone a source of calcium with clay or shale a source of silicon, aluminum and iron and grinding this product called clinker with a source of sulfate most commonly gypsum. In modern cement kilns , many advanced features are used to lower the fuel consumption per ton of clinker produced.

Cement kilns are extremely large, complex, and inherently dusty industrial installations, and have emissions which must be controlled. Of the various ingredients used to produce a given quantity of concrete, the cement is the most energetically expensive. Even complex and efficient kilns require 3. Many kilns can be fueled with difficult-to-dispose-of wastes, the most common being used tires. The extremely high temperatures and long periods of time at those temperatures allows cement kilns to efficiently and completely burn even difficult-to-use fuels.

Combining water with a cementitious material forms a cement paste by the process of hydration. The cement paste glues the aggregate together, fills voids within it, and makes it flow more freely. As stated by Abrams' law , a lower water-to-cement ratio yields a stronger, more durable concrete, whereas more water gives a freer-flowing concrete with a higher slump. As the reactions proceed, the products of the cement hydration process gradually bond together the individual sand and gravel particles and other components of the concrete to form a solid mass.

Reaction: [40]. Fine and coarse aggregates make up the bulk of a concrete mixture. Sand , natural gravel, and crushed stone are used mainly for this purpose. Recycled aggregates from construction, demolition, and excavation waste are increasingly used as partial replacements for natural aggregates, while a number of manufactured aggregates, including air-cooled blast furnace slag and bottom ash are also permitted.

The size distribution of the aggregate determines how much binder is required. Aggregate with a very even size distribution has the biggest gaps whereas adding aggregate with smaller particles tends to fill these gaps. The binder must fill the gaps between the aggregate as well as paste the surfaces of the aggregate together, and is typically the most expensive component. Thus, variation in sizes of the aggregate reduces the cost of concrete.

Redistribution of aggregates after compaction often creates inhomogeneity due to the influence of vibration. This can lead to strength gradients. Decorative stones such as quartzite , small river stones or crushed glass are sometimes added to the surface of concrete for a decorative "exposed aggregate" finish, popular among landscape designers. Concrete is strong in compression , as the aggregate efficiently carries the compression load.

However, it is weak in tension as the cement holding the aggregate in place can crack, allowing the structure to fail. Reinforced concrete adds either steel reinforcing bars , steel fibers , aramid fibers, carbon fibers , glass fibers , or plastic fibers to carry tensile loads.

Admixtures are materials in the form of powder or fluids that are added to the concrete to give it certain characteristics not obtainable with plain concrete mixes. Admixtures are defined as additions "made as the concrete mix is being prepared". The common types of admixtures [45] are as follows:.

Inorganic materials that have pozzolanic or latent hydraulic properties, these very fine-grained materials are added to the concrete mix to improve the properties of concrete mineral admixtures , [44] or as a replacement for Portland cement blended cements. Concrete production is the process of mixing together the various ingredients—water, aggregate, cement, and any additives—to produce concrete.

Concrete production is time-sensitive. Once the ingredients are mixed, workers must put the concrete in place before it hardens. In modern usage, most concrete production takes place in a large type of industrial facility called a concrete plant , or often a batch plant.

Острые раскаленные иглы впились в глазницы. Он уже ничего не видел и только чувствовал, как тошнотворный комок подкатил к горлу. Его крик эхом отозвался в черноте, застилавшей. Беккер не знал, сколько времени пролежал, пока над ним вновь не возникли лампы дневного света. Кругом стояла тишина, и эту тишину вдруг нарушил чей-то голос.

Иными словами, СЦР представляла собой оценочную стоимость вскрытия ТРАНСТЕКСТОМ одного шифра. Если цена не превышала тысячи долларов, Фонтейн никак не реагировал. Тысчонка за сеанс. Бринкерхофф ухмыльнулся. Деньги налогоплательщиков в действии.

Он не мог понять, куда она подевалась. Всякий раз включался автоответчик, но Дэвид молчал. Он не хотел доверять машине предназначавшиеся ей слова. Выйдя на улицу, Беккер увидел у входа в парк телефонную будку. Он чуть ли не бегом бросился к ней, схватил трубку и вставил в отверстие телефонную карту.

Энсей пользовался всеобщим уважением, работал творчески, с блеском, что дано немногим. Он был добрым и честным, выдержанным и безукоризненным в общении. Самым главным для него была моральная чистота. Именно по этой причине увольнение из АН Б и последующая депортация стали для него таким шоком. Танкадо, как и остальные сотрудники шифровалки, работал над проектом ТРАНСТЕКСТА, будучи уверенным, что в случае успеха эта машина будет использоваться для расшифровки электронной почты только с санкции министерства юстиции.

Сьюзан Флетчер вздохнула, села в кровати и потянулась к трубке. - Алло. - Сьюзан, это Дэвид.

Это единственное решение. Единственное, что остается. Нужно было думать о долге - о стране и о чести.

Соши развела руками. Она села за терминал Джаббы и перепечатала все группы, а закончив, подбежала к Сьюзан. Все посмотрели на экран.
