Description

Concrete is the second most used building material in the world after water. The problem is that over time the material becomes weaker. As a response, researchers and designers are developing self-sensing concrete which not only increases longevity but also the strength of the material. Self-Sensing Concrete in Smart Structures provides researchers and designers with a guide to the composition, sensing mechanism, measurement, and sensing properties of self-healing concrete along with their structural applications

Key Features

  • Provides a systematic discussion of the structure of intrinsic self-sensing concrete
  • Compositions of intrinsic self-sensing concrete and processing of intrinsic self-sensing concrete
  • Explains the sensing mechanism, measurement, and sensing properties of intrinsic self-sensing concrete

Readership

Civil and Material Engineering designers and researchers
