Concrete is a composite material which is composed of water, aggregate, and cement. Additives and reinforcements are used to achieve the physical properties of the finished material. Fluid mass is formed when we mix all the above mentioned ingredients and that is easily molded into different shapes. Over time, hard matrix is formed by the cement which binds the rest of the ingredients together into a durable stone-like material. Concrete production involves Mixing concrete, Workability and Curing.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
