Concrete Collection Texture (Seamless-Tileable) DrCG No 84
Concrete is an engineering material that simulates the properties of rock and is a combination of particles closely bound together.It is simply a blend of aggregates, normally natural sand and gravel or crushed rock. These are bound together by a hydraulic binder e.g. Portland Cement and activated by water to form a dense semi homogenous mass.
Because of its general characteristics concrete is sometimes referred to as artificial rock.Concrete is very strong in resisting compression. In use where tensile stresses have to be accommodated reinforcement is incorporated into the concrete to absorb tension. Concrete is the most widely used construction material.
It allows flexibility in structural form as it can be moulded into a multiplicity of shapes.
