Durability of concrete and cement composites

This book reviews the pore structure and chemistry of cement-based materials, providing the foundation for understanding the particular aspects of degradation which are discussed in the subsequent chapters. These include dimensional stability and cracking processes, chemical and microbiologicaldegradation of concrete, corrosion of reinforcing and prestressing steels, deterioration associated with certain aggregates, effects of frost, and problems involving fibre-reinforced and polymer-cement composites.
