Description

Transport Properties of Concrete: Modelling the Durability of Structures, Second Edition, covers how to measure transport properties and use the results to model performance. The book covers transport properties of concrete and the ability of ions and fluids to move through the material. These properties largely determine the durability of concrete and of steel embedded within it, as well as the effectiveness of structures such as landfill containment barriers.

Key Features

  • Includes a new chapter on modeling the durability of concrete structures
  • Discusses the transport properties of newer cement replacements and admixtures [nano-materials], and shows how the same problems could occur with tests
  • Covers the problems that occur when carrying out durability tests on concrete incorporating traditional cement replacements
