Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

This engineering textbook for concrete and cement-based materials, now in its second edition, takes a novel approach by studying these materials as advanced composites. Brandt (civil engineering, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Poland) examines the components and mechanical properties of high-performance concretes before exploring design, optimization and economics. This edition has been revised to include new developments over the last 20 years such as mass production of buildings and ordinary structures, innovative materials and technologies, and current methods for testing, computation and modelling.
