CONCRETE

Concrete is a mixture of cement blended with water and various sizes of aggregates. The cement and water form a paste that glues the aggregates together when it hardens. Concrete, in its freshly mixed state, is a plastic, workable mixture that can be formed into almost any desired shape. It starts
