Concrete,

Definition of Concrete:

  1. A heavy, rough building material made from a mixture of broken stone or gravel, sand, cement, and water, that can be spread or poured into molds and that forms a mass resembling stone on hardening.

  2. Form (something) into a mass; solidify.

  3. Cover (an area) with concrete.

  4. Building material in use since Roman times, made up of four main ingredients: coarse aggregate (gravel, usually between 0.5 to 1.5 inch in diameter), fine aggregate (sand, usually between 0.005 and 0.25 inch in diameter), Portland cement, and water. Air too plays an important part, and often special additives (called admixtures) are also added to improve or modify the concretes properties. Reinforced concrete is made by embedding steel rods in concrete that improve its tensile strength.

  5. Existing in a material or physical form; not abstract.
