Concrete Construction;Jan2006, Vol. 51 Issue 1, p116
The article discusses the problem encountered by the students-participants in the American Concrete Institute concrete construction competition. The problem involves the distance between the jobsite and the batch plant, by which trucking of cement between two destinations would consume too much time and would likewise affect the temperature.
