internationally acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on the
subject for both the professional and the student engineer. The book
has been translated into 12 languages and has sold well over half a
The fifth edition has been updated to reflect advances in concrete technology over the past decade,
yet it still retains the original aim of Professor Neville’s book: to provide reliable, comprehensive and
practical information on the properties and use of concrete, and the selection of mix proportions all
based on scientific observations and the author’s extensive engineering experience. The emphasis
throughout is on understanding the behaviour of concrete and relating it to physical and chemical
phenomena involved in the performance of the material in service. The overall effect is to give an
integrated view of the properties of concrete so as to enable the reader to achieve the best possible
construction in concrete. In addition, the scientific basis of the information provided is invaluable in
planning research and in the interpretation of test results.
