Sustainable Concrete Construction

Concrete is a global material that underwrites commercial wellbeing and social development. There is no substitute that can be used on the same engineering scale and its sustainability, expolitation and further development are imperatives to creating and maintaing a healthy economy and environment worldwide. The pressure for change and improvement of performance is relentless and necessary. Concrete must keep evolving to satisfy the increasing demands of all its users. These six volumes are the proceedings of the international Challenges of Concrete Construction Congress held in September 2002 with contributions from many of the world's leading authorities in this field.

Emerging Materials for Civil Infrastructure

Prepared by the Emerging Materials Committee of the Materials Division of ASCE. This report presents a review of the state of the art on emerging materials for use in civil engineering infrastructure. Emerging materials include novel and new materials, as well as traditional materials with profound potential in new applications. A material or class of materials is considered "emerging" if its use has not yet progressed to a stage wherein well-established guidelines, codes, and specifications exist for its use. This report is conveniently divided into chapters that address specific classes of materials andØhighlight the most recent developments in materials technologies relevant to civil inf...

Exploiting Wastes in Concrete

Concrete will be the key material for ankind to create the built environment of the next millennium. The requirements of this infrastructure will be both demanding, in terms of technical performance and economy, and yet be greatly varied, from architectural masterpieces to the simplest of utilities. Expoliting wastes in concrete forms the Proceedings of the one day International Seminar held during the Congress, Creating with concrete, 6-10 September 1999, organised by the concrete technology unit, University of Dundee. Topics discussed include maximising the use of waste materials in concrete production and the use of alternative materials in concrete. The themes of the seminar were maximising use and alternative options.

  • Publisher: CRC Press

Civil and structural engineering consultants engaged in quality control or investigations of hardened concrete need a comprehensive resource that explains the methods of determining strength and other performance characteristics. Handbook on Nondestructive Testing of Concrete, Second Edition answers this demand by providing a thorough analysis of nondestructive testing used to evaluate concrete structures. The Handbook examines the tools and techniques used to estimate the in-place strength of concrete and permeation properties that relate to potential durability, and it also describes the methods used to assess the condition of concrete integrity and steel reinforcement. The authors of each...
