Concrete In Practice (CIPs)

Concrete In Practice (CIP) Series

CIPs are quick references on a number of problems commonly encountered in the process of mixing and placing ready mix concrete. The CIPs can help troubleshoot, or for the proactive, provide guidance on proper methods for mixing and placing ready mix concrete.

These CIPs are provided courtesy of the National Ready Mix Concrete Association. For printed copies, contact the NRMCA at publications@nrmca.org or call (301) 587-1400 ext. 1165
