Product description


“The Properties of Concrete has always been an essential reference book for anyone dealing with concrete both as a constructional and a structural material. The Fifth edition has enhanced the previous edition by adding new items and data not previously discovered”


Professor Patrick J E Sullivan

The Structural Engineer, January 2012

From the Back Cover

Since its first publication in 1963, Properties of Concrete has been

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

million copies


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.


• new material includes such topics as self-compacting (self-consolidating) concrete, recycled concrete

  aggregate, thaumasite sulfate attack, compactability test, and delayed ettringite formation


• standards, both American (ASTM) and British/European updated to 2010 are used


• both SI and American (Imperial) units are used throughout


• includes 1500 full references to the world’s literature on concrete and its constituents


• an extensive subject index containing over 6000 entries provides excellent ease of  reference


• a full name index makes it possible to establish the contribution of individual researchers


Adam Neville is a renowned international authority on concrete and author or co-author of nine other

books, the latest of which are Neville on Concrete and Concrete: Neville’s Insights and Issues, as well

as over 250 research and technical papers. He has very extensive international experience as a consultant

and investigator of problems and failures in a variety of structures. In addition to his academic and

professional qualifications, he has Honorary Doctorates from the universities of Dundee, St Andrews, Calgary, Sherbrooke (Quebec) and Queen Mary University of London.
