Advanced Concrete Technology Book (PDF) by Zongjin Li – Free Download


               Concrete is the most widely used
material in the world. It plays an important role in infrastructure and private
buildings construction. Understanding the basic behaviors of concrete is
essential for civil engineering students to become civil engineering
professionals. There have been some very good books regarding concrete,
including Concrete by Mindess, Young, and Darwin, Concrete: Structure,
Properties, and Materials by Mehta and Monteriro, and Concrete Technology by
Neville and Brook. The motivation to write this book is to introduce new
methodologies, new developments, and new innovations in concrete technology.
The unique features of this book include the introduction of end use guided
research strategy for concrete, unification of materials and structures studies,
and an emphasize on fundamental exploration of concrete structures, state of
art of concrete development, and innovations.
               This book provides more
comprehensive knowledge on concrete technology, including the systematic
introduction of concrete fracture mechanics and nondestructive evaluation for
concrete engineering. The book is divided into nine chapters. Chapter 1 gives a
brief introduction of concrete, including its historic development and
advantages. Chapter 2 provides the knowledge of raw materials used for making
concrete, covering aggregates, binders, admixtures, and water. Chapter 3
discusses the properties of fresh concrete, including workability and the
corresponding measurement methods. Chapter 4 focuses on the structure of
concrete at different scales, especially the calcium silicate hydrate at
nanometer scale. Chapter 5 covers the properties of hardened concrete,
including strength, durability, stress–strain relation, and dimension
stability. Chapter 6 provides updated knowledge on various cement-based
composites, including self-consolidation concrete, ultra-high-strength
concrete, and extruded and engineered cementitious composites. Chapter 7
focuses the fracture behavior of concrete and provides the basic knowledge of
fracture mechanics of concrete. Chapter 8 covers the essential knowledge of
non-destructive testing of concrete engineering, including wave propagation
theory in 1-D case, detecting principles of different NDT methodologies and
techniques of different NDT methods. In Chapter 9, the issues regarding the
future and development trend of concrete have been discussed. Although the book
is designed and written primarily to meet the teaching needs for undergraduate
students at senior level and graduate students at entry level, it can serve as
a reference or a guide for professional engineers in their practice.
