Concrete by weight has very little cement and is mostly stone. Ferrocement has little stone, but rather sand and more steel than RC steel Reinforced Concrete. Then there are additives. There are a LOT of additives. Starting with the old time volcanic ashes and onward.
These harden cement faster or slower, stronger or weaker, air entrain it, waterproof it or make it otherwise behave differently. Then there are reinforcing materials such as steel, glass, resins, polymers rods, meshes and fibers that give tensile strength to the concrete.
Remember that concrete is a compression strong material.
Then there are coatings such as epoxies, fiberglass and such that are used with concrete. Then there is the shaping to optimize the structural elements. Thing arches, vaults, beams, trusses, decks, etc. Well, that was concretepage one intro.
Google those topics and start reading. Well, not drink but rather use it to cool our sq-ft walk in cooler for our new on-farm butcher shop.
