Abstract:
SP55 This symposium volume was conceived as a tribute to Douglas McHenry in recognition of his outstanding contributions to concrete engineering. The 10 papers dealing with plain concrete and the 14 papers dealing with concrete structures reflect the needs of advanced technological development for the concrete industry. The theme of the symposium was concrete and concrete structures in severe environments and/or complex loading conditions. Papers deal with effects of transient high temperatures, cryogenic temperatures, nuclear radiation, with prediction of overall structural behavior in fires, earthquakes, and with behavior of elements under complex loading conditions.
