Abstract:
The importance for a small European community of early contact with powerful American research after World War II is described with emphasis on the integration of learning from the behavior of field concrete and from theoretical exploration of the basic nature of concrete. The tutorial and exchange contributions by K. and B. Mather are discussed, especially about their system approach to investigations of field concrete and their dedication to the development of research and testing. A survey of the changing conditions for concrete technology and research is outlined and, in conclusion, more integration of structural analyses and materials research are recommended.
