Concrete is a word that was derived from "concretus", the Latin for which is compact. This is basically a mixture of a lot of materials namely cement, coarse aggregate, chemical admixtures, water, sand, and gravel, otherwise known as crushed stone. If you mix this material with water, it will create a fluid which can be molded into pretty much any shape you like. It will then solidify into stone soon after. Hydration is what this process is called. When mixed with water the other constituents of the cement then bond together. This material is used for architectural structures such as fences, bricks, parking structures, overpasses, bridges, runways, roads, highways, foundations, walls, poles, pillars, roofs, and many more.
