oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Chemical and physical methods for evaluating and developing building materials

Volume 8, Issue 9
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Chemical and physical techniques for the development and evaluation of building materials are briefly reviewed in relation to their significance, selection, interpretation, application, diversity and effectiveness, The principles, characteristics and interpretation of accelerated performance tests, dimensional change studies and high temperature techniques are discussed in general terms with some examples of their application to specific problems. Current and probable future trends envisaged are increases in extent and complexity of research and test methods, their more judicious and rational application, a demand for skilled and specialised manpower, new procedures to develop and assess materials for special requirements arising from the application of advances in science, and a greater need for fundamental research,
