Abstract

Discusses the use of high alumina cement concrete (HAC) in the construction industry, highlighting both its advantages and disadvantages. Outlines its strengths and uses, and analyses the materials science of HAC concentrating on composition, hydration and attempts to avoid conversion. Examines the Imperial College experience with HAC and its implications for surveyors.
