A Novel Method for Tensile Testing of Very Early-age Concrete

Early-age cracking can seriously compromise the performance and aesthetics of concrete structures, and is thus an ongoing major concern to the concrete construction industry. More effective control of this form of cracking requires an Continue reading

Durability-Based Optimal Design Methodology for RC Members in Corrosive Environment

As durability-based design of reinforced concrete (RC) structures in corrosive environments is highly influenced by chloride-induced corrosion of reinforcing steel bars, this paper first presents brief outline of an experimental investigation recently Continue reading
