The author provides interpretations of the courts’ findings and contrasts the decisions with other results where possible.

Expanded to over 260 pages, this new edition is reorganized around key topics – Cracking, Load Tickets, Responsibility for Mix, and more. These unique topics can be found only in this publication. The first chapter provides a basic primer on concrete, and is followed by chapters organized around specific construction and legal topics.
