Beschreibung

Properties of Concrete, first published in 1963, has been internationally acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on the subject for both the professional and the student engineer.

The fifth edition has been updated to reflect advances in concrete technology over the past decade, yet it still retains the original aim: to provide reliable, comprehensive and practical information on the properties and use of concrete, and the selection of mix proportions all based on scientific observations and the authors extensive engineering experience.

The emphasis is on understanding the behaviour of concrete and relating it to physical and chemical phenomena involved in its performance in service, so that the reader to achieve the best possible construction in concrete. Also, the scientific basis of the information provided is invaluable in planning research and in the interpretation of test results.



Autorentext

Adam Neville is a renowned international authority on concrete and author or co-author of nine other books, the latest of which are Neville on Concrete and Concrete: Neville’s Insights and Issues, as well as over 250 research and technical papers. He has very extensive international experience as a consultant and investigator of problems and failures in a variety of structures. In addition to his academic and professional qualifications, he has Honorary Doctorates from four universities.



Klappentext

Since its first publication in 1963, Properties of Concrete has been

internationally acclaimed as the definitive work of reference on the

subject for both the professional and the student engineer. The book

 has been translated into 12 languages and has sold well over half a

million copies

  

The fifth edition has been updated to reflect advances in concrete technology over the past decade,

yet it still retains the original aim of Professor Neville’s book: to provide reliable, comprehensive and

practical information on the properties and use of concrete, and the selection of mix proportions all

based on scientific observations and the author’s extensive engineering experience. The emphasis

throughout is on understanding the behaviour of concrete and relating it to physical and chemical

phenomena involved in the performance of the material in service. The overall effect is to give an

integrated view of the properties of concrete so as to enable the reader to achieve the best possible

construction in concrete. In addition, the scientific basis of the information provided is invaluable in

planning research and in the interpretation of test results.

 

• new material includes such topics as self-compacting (self-consolidating) concrete, recycled concrete

  aggregate, thaumasite sulfate attack, compactability test, and delayed ettringite formation

 

• standards, both American (ASTM) and British/European updated to 2010 are used

 

• both SI and American (Imperial) units are used throughout

 

• includes 1500 full references to the world’s literature on concrete and its constituents

 

• an extensive subject index containing over 6000 entries provides excellent ease of  reference

 

• a full name index makes it possible to establish the contribution of individual researchers

 

Adam Neville is a renowned international authority on concrete and author or co-author of nine other
