WHAT IS CONCRETE
Concrete’s origin can be traced back to the Mediterranean in early Romans times where deposits of volcanic ash (with its cement like properties) were used primarily as a masonry jointing material. However the early Roman method was not with-out it’s problems, as they had not attempted to reinforce it to overcome its inherent tensional weakness. The use of metal as reinforcement was not done until as late as the 1850’s in France. Apart from the use of modern day admixtures, mixing a selection of aggregate, sand,cement with water to create concrete, or reinforced concrete is not much different today as compared to the early French version.
