two of the most important materials of construction, Portland cement (PC) and Portland cement con-crete (PCC).
People frequently make the error of using these terms interchangeably. It is important to
keep in mind that PC is a powder, while PCC is initially a plastic material and for the remainder of
its life, a solid.

A valid analogy is to compare PC to flour and PCC to bread. The book aims to assist
students to gain an understanding of PC and PCC through the physical handling and testing of these
materials in the laboratory environment.
While the book was primarily written for use at the college
level, it may also serve as a practical guide for the graduate engineer and laboratory technician.
