Concrete Con*crete", v. i. [imp. & p. p. {Concreted}; p. pr & vb. n. {Concreting}.] To unite or coalesce, as separate particles, into a mass or solid body. [1913 Webster]

Note: Applied to some substances, it is equivalent to indurate; as, metallic matter concretes into a hard body; applied to others, it is equivalent to congeal, thicken, inspissate, coagulate, as in the concretion of blood. ``The blood of some who died of the plague could not be made to concrete.'' --Arbuthnot.
