'The volume includes very valuable contributions that may be of interest not only for professors, researchers and Ph.D students but also for practitioners who intend to learn the behaviour and applicability of high performance fibre reinforced cement composites' - Cement and Concrete Research
'The published papers give an overview of the leading edge of this field and provide a reference base to build on.' - The Structural Engineer
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
