SP-249 This publication is a collection of 13 papers that have significantly influenced the field of concrete and cement-based materials over the years. The subject matter of the selected landmark papers represents a broad range of topics, from the analysis of the chemical composition of portland cement to the development of fracture models of concrete in computational simulations. The objective of this publication was to increase awareness of the significance of concrete materials research as a whole and therefore raise the profile of the field. In this volume, each landmark paper is preceded by a foreword written by an expert on the specific topic of the paper. Editorial in nature, these forewords serve to guide the reader through the content of the paper, to illuminate the significance of its contribution to the technical community, and in some cases, to reveal interesting historical context on the landmark work and its authors.
