Concrete In Australia : December 2013
Concrete in Australia Vol 39 No 4 57 LIBRARY LATEST TITLES Concrete Institute of Australia members are welcome to use the Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia’s library services. The library is located at the CCAA’s Sydney office on Level 6, 504 Pacific Highway, St Leonards, NSW. The databases can be accessed electronically via www.concrete.net.au. The postal address is Locked Bag 2010, St Leonards, NSW 1590. Phone: (61 2) 9437 9711 fax: (61 2) 9437 9470, email: email@example.com. Supplementary Cementing Materials in Concrete THOMAS, M. CRC, Boca Raton, Florida, 2013 Supplementary cementing materials (SCMs), such as fly ash, slag, silica fume, and natural pozzolans, make a significant difference to the properties of concrete but are rarely understood in any detail. SCMs can influence the mechanical properties of concrete and improve its durability in aggressive environments. Supplementary Cementing Materials in Concrete covers the chemical, physical, and mineralogical properties of SCMs; their chemical reactions; and the resulting changes in the microstructure of concrete. Reinforced Concrete Basics, Second Edition WARNER, R., FOSTER, S., KILPATRICK, A. Pearson, London, 2013 This book has been written for students and for practicing structural engineers. It provides an up-to-date practical treatment of reinforced concrete design in accordance with the new edition of the Australian Concrete Structures Standard, AS 3600-2009, and takes account of the latest industry developments, including the use of high-strength concrete and higher-strength steels. Reliability of Structures, Second Edition NOWAK, A. S., COLLINS, K. R . CRC, 2012 Reliability of Structures enables both students and practising engineers to appreciate how to value and handle reliability as an important dimension of structural design. It discusses the concepts of limit states and limit state functions, and presents methodologies for calculating reliability indices and calibrating partial safety factors. It also supplies information on the probability distributions and parameters used to characterise both applied loads and member resistances. Reinforced Concrete Structural Reliability EL-REEDY, M. A. CRC, 2012 Structural engineers must focus on a structure’s continued safety throughout its service life. Reinforced Concrete Structural Reliability covers the methods that enable engineers to keep structures reliable during all project phases, and presents a practical exploration of up-to-date techniques for predicting the lifetime of a structure. The book also helps readers understand where the safety factors used come from and addresses the problems that arise from deviation from these factors. It also examines the question of what code is best to follow for a specific project: the American code, the British Standard, the Eurocode, or other local codes. STP1566 : Geopolymer Binder Systems STRUBLE, L., HICKS, J. ASTM, 2013 Thirteen peer-reviewed papers provide the latest research on geopolymer binders and their performance. Topics cover the production, characterisation, and use of these binders, including durability issues. With the increasing need for sustainable binders, binder systems such as s geopolymers and related alkali-activated aluminosilicates, are being increasingly and actively studied. They are already being marketed as specialty products and are being explored for use in structural concrete. Concrete and Sustainability JAHREN, P., SUI, T. CRC Press Concrete is by far the most common building material – accounting for twice the volume of all other such materials combined. With such a huge global economic impact, the industry has a correspondingly considerable responsibility to use it sustainably. Written by experts who pioneered research into environmental issues and concrete, Concrete and Sustainability examines the sustainability issues of the world’s main construction material and proposes attainable solutions. It provides a complete overview of the topic and tackles the complexity of the challenges from different angles. Environmental Impact of Brick, Stone and Concrete ALLBURY, K., FRANKLIN, E., ANDERSON, J. IHS BRE, Garston, Watford, 2013 This report provides a review of how brick, stone and concrete materials have been assessed within the current edition of The Green Guide to Specification, including the application of the environmental profiles methodology that underlies The Green Guide. This report aims to provide manufacturers and specifiers with a general understanding of the approach and decisions that have been made when applying the environmental profiles methodology to these materials. The major impacts and opportunities for using brick, stone and concrete over their whole life cycle are discussed and opportunities for improvements to the environmental performance of these materials are identified. This report has been produced as part of a series providing background information on the production of The Green Guide. Many of the other reports in the series that focus on specific materials may also be of use when considering the environmental impact of construction products. 57 - Library.indd 57 57 - Library.indd 57 25/11/13 4:16 PM 25/11/13 4:16 PM
