  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  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. 
 
  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.
