Workmanship for a Structural Concrete Code

The author considers the requirements for workmanship in the construction of structural concrete. The concrete mix, batching and placing, the design, construction and striking of formwork are all covered, together with the requirements of curing and cold-weather concreting. The author proposes a svstem of tolerances for construction and gives special consideration to surface finishes for architectural effects. T.N.W. Akroyd
