"Concrete Durability" has been designed to examine the effects of various concreting materials and construction techniques on the ability of hydraulic cement concretes to remain durable under various aggressive exposure conditions found in today’s environment.
"Concrete Durability," a symposium volume comprised of 111 papers from around the world, examines the present state of knowledge, identifies and discusses problems and known solutions, and determines what improvements in practice are needed and how they may be achieved. Published in two volumes, and divided by subject matter (sulfate attack, alkali-aggregate reaction, abrasion, corrosion, and others) topics covered include: durability of high-strength concrete, why we have concrete durability problems, concrete durability in bridges, evaluation of the effectiveness of curing concrete structures, frost susceptibility of high-strength concrete, fly ash, and concrete durability, deterioration of aggregates -- the underlying causes and much more.
