Classroom Stock Photo Orginal croppedDesign and Control of Concrete Mixtures has been the cement and concrete industry’s primary reference on concrete technology, since PCA published the first U.S. edition in the early 1920s. The current course, based on this industry standard, reflects the latest advances in concrete technology.
