Numerical Modeling of AAR

1st Edition

Victor Saouma
August 16, 2018

This reference book presents the theory and methodology to conduct a finite element assessment of concrete structures subjected to chemically induced volumetric expansion in general and alkali aggregate reaction in particular. It is limited to models developed by the author, and focuses on how to...

Alkali-Aggregate Reaction and Structural Damage to Concrete: Engineering Assessment, Repair and Management

1st Edition

Geoffrey E. Blight, Mark G Alexander
August 14, 2018

Since AAR was first identified in 1940, it has been a subject dominated by studies of the mineralogy of AAR-susceptible aggregates, the chemistry of the AAR and related reactions and laboratory tests used to diagnose AAR and predict potential future swelling. Civil and structural engineers have...

1st Edition

Sharmin Khan
August 14, 2018

This book focuses on Constructability, a project management tool and its effectiveness in promotion of sustainable development and architecture. Constructability concentrates on the optimum use of construction knowledge and experience in planning, engineering, procurement and field operations to...

Damage Models and Algorithms for Assessment of Structures under Operating Conditions: Structures and Infrastructures Book Series, Vol. 5

1st Edition

Siu-Seong Law, Xin-Qun Zhu
August 10, 2018

Extensive amounts of operational data are generated over time by the health monitoring system of a structure’s management system, yet there are few analysis algorithms which can tell the exact working state of the structure on-line. Good maintenance engineers need to know the exact location and...

Matrix Methods of Structural Analysis

1st Edition

Praveen Nagarajan
August 06, 2018

This book deals with matrix methods of structural analysis for linearly elastic framed structures. It starts with background of matrix analysis of structures followed by procedure to develop force-displacement relation for a given structure using flexibility and stiffness coefficients. The...

Failures in Concrete Structures: Case Studies in Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete

1st Edition

Robin Whittle
June 28, 2018

Some lessons are only learned from mistakes but, it’s much cheaper to learn from someone else’s mistakes than to have to do so from your own. Drawing on over fifty years of working with concrete structures, Robin Whittle examines the problems which he has seen occur and shows how they could...
