Mining Equipment and Systems: Theory and Practice of Exploitation and Reliability

Jacek M. Czaplicki
June 21, 2017

It has been almost fifty years since the first papers on the application of reliability theory to mining problems were published in the United States. Developing rapidly in the late 1950s and 1960s, reliability theory quickly found a wide application in mining engineering. Ten years later "...

Supplementary Cementing Materials in Concrete

Michael Thomas
March 29, 2017

Supplementary cementing materials (SCMs), such as fly ash, slag, silica fume, and natural pozzolans, make a significant difference to the properties of concrete but are rarely understood in any detail. SCMs can influence the mechanical properties of concrete and improve its durability in aggressive...
