Summary : The response of concrete under tensile loading is crucial for most applications because concrete is much weaker in tension than in compression. Understanding the response mechanisms of concrete under tensile conditions is therefore key to understanding and using concrete in structural applications. Understanding the tensile properties of concrete summarises key recent research in this important subject. After an introduction to concrete, the book is divided into two parts: part one on static response and part two on dynamic response. Part one starts with a summary chapter on the most important parameters that affect the tensile response of concrete. Chapters show how multi scale modelling is used to relate concrete composition to tensile properties. Part two focuses on dynamic response and starts with an introduction to the different regimes of dynamic loading, ranging from the low frequency loading by wind or earthquakes up to the extreme dynamic conditions due to explosions and ballistic impacts. Following chapters review dynamic testing techniques and devices that deal with the various regimes of dynamic loading. Later chapters highlight the dynamic behaviour of concrete from different viewpoints, and the book ends with a chapter on practical examples of how detailed knowledge on tensile properties is used by engineers in structural applications. Drawing on the work of some of the leading experts in the field, Understanding the tensile properties of concrete is a valuable reference for civil and structural engineers as well as those researching this important material.

Summary : The State-of-the-Art Report of RILEM Technical Committee 228-MPS on Mechanical properties of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) summarizes an extensive body of information related to mechanical properties and mechanical behaviour of SCC. Due attention is given to the fact that the composition of SCC varies significantly. A wide range of mechanical properties are considered, including compressive strength, stress-strain relationship, tensile and flexural strengths, modulus of elasticity, shear strength, effect of elevated temperature, such as fire spalling and residual properties after fire, in-situ properties, creep, shrinkage, bond properties and structural behaviour. A chapter on fibre-reinforced SCC is included, as well as a chapter on specialty SCC, such as light-weight SCC, heavy-weight SCC, preplaced aggregate SCC, special fibre reinforced SCC and underwater concrete.

Summary : Cement-Based Composites takes a different approach from most other books in the field by viewing concrete as an advanced composite material, and by considering the properties and behaviour of cement-based materials from this stance. It deals particularly, but not exclusively, with newer forms of cement-based materials. This new edition takes a critical approach to the subject as well as presenting up-to-date knowledge. Emphasis is given to non-conventional reinforcement and design methods, problems at the materials' interfaces and to the durability of structures. High strength composites and novel forms of cement-based composites are described in detail. After a basic introduction the book explores the various components of these materials and their properties. It then deals with mechanical properties and considers characteristics under various loading and environmental conditions, and concludes by examining design, optimization and economics with particular emphasis on high-performance concretes. Researchers, graduate students and practising engineers will find this book valuable.

Summary : The amount and variety of waste that humanity dumps in landfill sites is nothing short of a scandal, believes Rafat Siddique, of Deemed University in Patiala, India. Instead, we ought to be building new homes out of it! Siddique shows in this important book that many non-hazardous waste materials and by-products which are landfilled, can in fact be used in making concrete and similar construction materials.

Summary : The 2014 International Conference on Energy and Power Engineering (EPE2014), will be held on April 26–27, 2014, in Hong Kong, China. The aim of this international convention is to bring together experts and scholars from around the world and offer them a chance to share the latest research results in the field of Energy and Power Engineering. We all know that over the past few decades, a great change has happened in the field of the environment technology, and the science technology is growing faster and faster. In order to keep up with the daily changing situation, we have sent invitations to experts, scholars and other people who have devoted himself in related fields, and it is a great honor to us that most of them have accepted our invitation and supported the EPE2014 with their latest studies. Up till now, we have received over three hundred papers from various countries; this shows that there has been a growing interest in the field of energy and power engineering. Among those papers received, we have eventually chosen about a hundred to be presented and included in this proceeding. These papers generally represented the current research status in this field and the future trend. We sincerely believe that these papers could be valuable to the future work of yours. Finally, on behalf of the committee, I would like to deeply express our gratitude to those who have supported the EPE2014, especially the international experts who helped reviewing papers, the DEStech Publications help publish the conference proceedings, and last but not least, the authors of these inspiring papers. Without the help from these people, EPE2014 would not be as half successful as it is now. Here, welcome to EPE2014 and let’s hope that it will be a great success. Tim Chou

Summary : Steel-concrete composite bridges outlines the various forms that modern steel-concrete composite bridges take, from simple beam bridges through to arches and trusses and modern cable-stay forms. The author brings together a wide variety of steel-concrete composite bridge types, many of which have not been covered in any existing book or design guide. Outlined within are emerging technologies such as folded plate webs, double composite action and extra-dosed girders, along with design rules for composite action and examples of their use in a wide variety of practical applications. Steel-concrete composite bridges shows how to choose the bridge form and design element sizes to enable the production of accurate drawings and also highlights a wide and full range of examples of the design and construction of this bridge type.
