Concrete is composed of cement, and other material such as fly ash, slag cement, and aggregate (gravel, limestone, or similar material) plus a fine aggregate such as sand. Water and chemical additives give it a liquid state until it cures (hardens).
The word concrete comes from the Latin word "concretus" (meaning compact or condensed).
Concrete solidifies and hardens after mixing with water due to hydration. The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together creating a stone-like material. Concrete is used for paving, buildings, foundations, and many other structures.
