AbstractCement and concrete are critical to the world economic system; the construction sector as a whole contributed US$3.3 trillion to the global economy in 2008 [1]. The fraction of this figure which is directly attributable to materials costs varies markedly from country to country – particularly between developing and developed countries. Worldwide production of cement in 2008 was around 2.9 billion tonnes [2], making it one of the highest-volume commodities produced worldwide. Concrete is thus the second-most used commodity in the world, behind only water [3]. It is noted that there are certainly applications for cement-like binders beyond concrete production, including tiling grouts, adhesives, sealants, waste immobilisation matrices, ceramics, and other related areas; these will be discussed in more detail in Chaps. 12 and 13, while the main focus of this chapter will be large-scale concrete production.
