DRI financially supported the issuing of a manual for concrete published in May by the Concrete Association of Slovenia. The manual subtitled "Planning and production of concrete" relates to two basic standards, the requirements and provisions which are to be taken into consideration when designing concrete structures, preparing concrete or monitoring and testing fresh and hardened concrete.
In the manual, standards are presented in a wider, more transparent and detailed way. It also includes the examples of exposure classes for certain types of structures and answers to some questions arising from everyday practice.
The manual is a welcome tool for a better use of concrete and understanding of the requirements and provisions of the standard. It will help anyone willing to improve their knowledge about concrete.
