Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Mechanics and Physics of Creep, Shrinkage, and Durability of Concrete and Concrete Structures, held in Vienna, Austria, September 21-23, 2015. Sponsored by RILEM and the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE
This collection contains 187 papers invited on the basis of carefully peer-reviewed abstracts. It elucidates the intricacies of concrete, linking atomistic physics to real life civil engineering design.
Topics include: microstructures and micromechanics; multiscale creep, shrinkage, fracture, and durability properties; constitutive and numerical modeling; simulation and design of concrete structures; molecular- to lab-scale simulations and characterization of concrete; macroscopic material testing; creep and shrinkage of concrete under extreme conditions; monitoring of concrete structures and exploitation of measurement data; and creep and shrinkage properties of new cementitious materials.
Scientists from physics and engineering disciplines working on the next generation of materials will find that these papers present the state-of-the-art in concrete creep, shrinkage, and durability mechanics.
