Summary "Proposing a simplified but integrated scenario of the concrete life-cycle simulation method, this book examines and explains, using a common set of physical laws, the vast number of experimental observations related to hardening concrete. The methods used focus on the three primary processes common to the development of all cementitious materials: hydration, moisture transport and structure formation."--BOOK JACKET.
