[′mas ′kän‚krēt]
(civil engineering)
Concrete set without structural reinforcement.

mass concrete

Any volume of cast-in-place concrete intended to resist applied loads by virtue of its mass; generally cast as a monolithic structure; usually incorporates a high proportion of large coarse aggregate and a low cement content.
