Om boka

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 transport properties of concrete and measurements of 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 waste containment barriers. The book provides a comprehensive examination of the subject and will be of use to all concerned with the durability and effectiveness of concrete structures.

Om forfatteren

Peter A. Claisse is Professor Emeritus at Coventry University and the author of more than 100 publications on construction and materials, including the Woodhead title Transport Properties of Concrete: Measurements and Applications. He graduated with a degree in Physics from Oxford University and then spent the next 9 years working as a Civil Engineer on major UK construction sites including 4 years on the Torness nuclear power station. After obtaining a PhD in Civil Engineering at Leeds University, studying Silica Fume in concrete, he then went to the AEA Technology Harwell laboratory for 3 years to work on Nuclear waste containment. He was at Coventry University for 20 years, teaching Civil Engineering Materials and researching transport processes in concrete and the use of secondary materials in cement.
