Ready-Mix Concrete

Concrete is a material used in building construction, consisting of a hard, chemically inert particulate substance, known as an aggregate (usually made from different types of sand and gravel), that is bonded together by cement and water.

The Assyrians and Babylonians used clay as cement, and the Egyptians used lime and gypsum. In 1756, British engineer, John Smeaton made the first modern concrete by adding pebbles as a coarse aggregate and mixing powered brick into the cement. In 1824, English inventor, Joseph Aspdin created the first true artificial cement, called the portland cement, by burning ground limestone and clay together. As of today, it remains the main fine aggregate in concrete production.

Concrete that includes imbedded metal (usually steel) is called reinforced concrete or ferroconcrete. Reinforced concrete was invented (1849) by Joseph Monier, a Parisian gardener who made garden pots and tubs of concrete reinforced with an iron mesh. Besides his pots and tubs, Joseph Monier promoted reinforced concrete for use in railway ties, pipes, floors, arches, and bridges.
