In this book we have covered brief introduction to Concrete, Ingredients of concrete and its brief introduction, various types of concretes and its mix design practices. Special types of concretes includes Self Compacting Concrete, High Performance Concrete, Geopolymer Concrete, Bacterial Concrete, Light weight Concrete / Floating Concrete, Pervious Concrete, etc. in this book we have covered all mentioned concrete's mix design practices, tests on it to analyze its special properties in fresh as well as hardened stages, design practices in various countries. This book will perform as a guide of knowledge for the different types of special concretes available in market to Undergraduate (U.G.), Postgraduate (P.G.) as well as Research Scholar students. This book will also provide details regarding Recent Trends in civil engineering in field of concrete technology for mentioned special types of concrete; it will give benefits to reader to accumulate the results of various mix designs regarding various proportions of admixtures and materials by replacement of core ingredients in concrete in a single book. Book will provide details by which any reader can avail his / her knowledge to apply various methods of mix design to achieve desire properties of special concrete. This book is written according to the Standards of various countries as single standard doesn't cover all types concretes mix design.
