By Peter Hewlett

Lea's Chemistry of Cement and urban offers with the chemical and actual houses of cements and concretes and their relation to the sensible difficulties that come up in manufacture and use. As such it really is addressed not just to the chemist and people interested by the technology and know-how of silicate fabrics, but additionally to these attracted to using concrete in construction and civil engineering building. a lot recognition is given to the suitability of fabrics, to the stipulations less than which concrete can excel and people the place it may well go to pot and to the precautionary or remedial measures that may be adopted.

First released in 1935, this is often the fourth variation and the 1st to seem because the dying of Sir Frederick Lea, the unique writer.
