Concrete is a composite construction material, composed of cement (commonly Portland cement and other cement materials such as fly ash and slag cement, aggregate (generally a coarse aggregate made of gravel or crushed rocks such as limestone, or granite, plus a fine aggregate such as sand), water, and chemical admixtures.
The word concrete comes from the Latin word "concretus" (meaning compact or condensed), the perfect passive participle of "concrescere", from "con-" (together) and "crescere" (to grow).
Concrete solidifies and hardens after mixing with water and placement due to a chemical process known as hydration . The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together, eventually creating a robust stone-like material. Concrete is used to make pavements , pipe, architectural structures, foundations, motorways/roads, bridges/overpasses, parking structures, brick /block walls and footings for gates, fences and poles.
Concrete is used more than any other man-made material in the world made each year-more than one cubic meter for every person on Earth.
