The first step in optimizing concrete is to recognize that concrete is no longer simply cementitious materials, aggregates and water. It is a high performance material with not just four, but seven essentials – consisting of water, cementitious material, sand, gravel, chemical admixtures, additives and fiber reinforcement.
