Specificity of Deformation and Strength Behavior of Massive Elements of Concrete Structures in a Medium with Low Humidity

Specificity of Deformation and Strength Behavior of Massive Elements of Concrete Structures in a Medium with Low Humidity discusses the influence of weather conditions, the density of the structure, and how these elements, along with others, affect the concrete curing process. It explores the effects of climate in all phases of construction, its impact on the rheological properties of concretes, and the carrying capacity of compressed concrete and reinforced concrete elements. In addition, it provides the methods to determine the basic heterogeneity of mechanical properties of concrete structures and novel calculation methods for concrete columns and reinforced concrete beams. Includes new, more accurate design calculation methods for predicting the reliability of concrete structures in hot and dry environments Actively investigates the behavior of basic physical and mechanical properties of concrete structures Includes data collected over 18 years of research on the dynamics of strength and deformation of concrete structures

Heterotopia, literally meaning ‘other place’, is a rich concept in urban design that describes a space that is on the margins of ordered or civil society, and one that possesses multiple, fragmented or even incompatible meanings. The term has had an impact on architectural and urban theory since it was coined by Foucault in the late 1960s but it has remained a source of confusion and debate since. Heterotopia and the City seeks to clarify this concept and investigates the

This comprehensive treatise covers in detail practical methods of analysis as well as advanced mathematical models for structures highly sensitive to creep and shrinkage. Effective computational algorithms for century-long creep effects in structures, moisture diffusion and high temperature effects are presented. The main design codes and recommendations (including RILEM B3 and B4) are critically compared. Statistical uncertainty of century-long predictions is analyzed and its reduction by extrapolation is discussed, with emphasis on updating based on short-time tests and on long-term
