This book will be of particular interest to specifiers applying the principles of the new European Standard EN 206-1 for the first time; to postgraduate researchers in mathematical modeling of degradation mechanisms; to undergraduates of engineering, architecture, and building technology; and to students of advanced concrete technology who require a concise source of reference on concrete durability. - Concrete International
An excellent handbook of the topic...provides the reader with clear, concise explanations of a complex theorotical topic demonstrated through a first generation engineering standard. The reader leaves with a clear understanding of where reinforced concrete durability standards have evolved to today and where they are heading in the future...The end of the volume includes fourteen pages of references and the book is backed by a well-developed index. This book is strongly recommended for corporate and academic engineering libraries.
