Small Scale Modelling of Concrete Structures
The complex behaviour of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete structures, particularly after the onset of cracking, means that model analysis is the only practical method of determining structural behaviour. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the techniques and materials for accurate small-scale modelling. Modelling techniques are continually improving and the library of examples increasing. Through an international authorship recent techniques are presented and many examples cited. The information provided within the book therefore represents the most recent developments in the subject. In particular, impact, earthquake and dynamic problems are presented for the first time in a book. Reference is made to codes of practice, where appropriate, and in addition an extensive bibliography is included. The book should be of great value to researchers in the subject of concrete structures. It will also be of value to postgraduate students in the subject.
