Norval Dobbs and Edward Cohen
Comparision of results of full-and model-scale explosive tests of cubicles and other similar reinforced concrete protective structures have shown that a reasonable estimate of the blast-resistant capabilities of these structures can be obtained from model tests as small as one-tenth scale. However, the results of the above tests have also indicated that care must be exercised in the preparation of the model and the test site as well as in the performance of the test in order to achieve the test data desired.

This comprehensive volume containing 17 papers deals with all aspects of modeling concrete structures with emphasis placed on modeling the true, inelastic behavior of concrete structures and concluding with an annotated bibliography, "Models for Concrete Structures" is an excellent reference book.
The building and testing of a one-sixteenth scale microconcrete model of a typical interior span of a proposed six lane viaduct is described.
J. Ferry Borges and Jervis Pereira
The use of model for studying the dynamic behavior of concrete structures is described. Particular reference is made to the use of random vibrations for simulating earthquake loads. Instances of applications in dams, piers, tanks and buildings are presented.
Prepared by Nancy Ady and James E. Carpenter
Classified under 21 section titles the 159 references from 186 authors included in this bibliography have been selected as representative of the material available in each category within the broad field of model testing. Both early and current references have been included to show how the art of model testing has advanced, and both detailed and cursory studies have been included to show how the art varies today. This bibliography is selective rather than all-inclusive.
