Concrete In Australia : March 2014
Concrete in Australia Vol 40 No 1 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 10, Altitude Corporate Centre, 163-175 O’Riordan Street, Mascot NSW. The databases can be accessed electronically via www.concrete.net.au. The postal address is PO Box 124, Mascot NSW 1460. Phone: 02 9667 8320 Fax: 02 9693 5234, email: firstname.lastname@example.org . ACI Physical testing of cement training video (DVD – total running time: 1:42:51) ACI COMMITTEE E905, TRAINING PROGRAMS, TASK GROUP, ACI, 2013 The ACI Physical Testing of Cement Training Video is a resource for new Portland cement testers and a refresher for experienced testers. The video is presented in chapters based on test methods so each can be reviewed individually. Each chapter reviews the equipment specific to the ASTM test, the procedure to follow the test, and calculation of the result. Helpful tips are provided throughout to improve a technician’s knowledge and technique. fib Bulletin No. 69: Critical comparison of major seismic codes for buildings THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION FOR STRUCTURAL CONCRETE, 2013 fib Bulletin 69 illustrates and compares major buildings seismic codes applied in the US, Japan, New Zealand, Europe, Canada, Chile and Mexico. fib Bulletin 69 represents a useful, unique instrument for rapidly gaining an overview of the distinguishing features of major world codes, of their conceptual framework and application rules. SP-295: Recent advances in the design of prestressed concrete piles in marine structures in seismic regions OSPINA, C. E., FRIZZI, R. P., D’ARGENZIO, DE. (Eds.) ACI, 2013 This CD consists of eight papers presented at a technical session sponsored by ACI Committees 357, 423, and 543 at the ACI Convention in Minneapolis in the United States in April 2013. The papers cover key aspects which are relevant to seismic analysis, design, detailing and experimental testing of precast prestressed concrete piles as substructure elements of marine structures. fib Model code for concrete structures 2010 (MC2010) THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION FOR STRUCTURAL CONCRETE, 2013 The objectives of the fib Model Code 2010 are to serve as a basis for future codes for concrete structures and to present new developments on concrete structures, structural materials and new ideas. The Model Code for Concrete Structures 2010 is now the most comprehensive, focusing on concrete structures, including their complete life cycle: conceptual design, dimensioning, construction, conservation and dismantlement. It is expected to become an important document for both national and international code committees, practitioners and researchers. Principles of pavement engineering, 2nd edition THOM, N. ICE Publishing, 2014 The second edition provides an in-depth analysis of the principles underlying material behaviour, pavement design and maintenance for pavement engineers and infrastructure experts faced with practical design issues for which transient standards are insufficient. Covering soils, granular materials, hydraulically-bound materials (including concrete), and asphalt, this publication explains their various properties and the way in which they are affected by compaction, water content and binder content. New information on warm-mix and cold-mix asphalt; design against potholes; and stress absorbing membrane interlayers is included. Curing concrete TAYLOR, P. C., CRC, 2013 Curing Concrete explains exactly why curing is so important and shows how it is best done. The book covers the fundamentals behind hydration; how curing affects the properties of concrete, improving its long-term performance; what curing technologies and techniques you can use for different applications; and how to effectively specify, provide, and measure curing in a project. Curing Concrete also explores US and European Standard specifications, making the book applicable for international use. 9th RMS Annual Bridge Conference: Bridge journey through partnership, 4-5 December 2013, Sydney. [papers] NSW Govt, Roads & Maritime Services, 2013 The RMS Annual Bridge Conference continues to serve the bridge community as a conduit in sharing innovations, sustainable solutions and emerging technologies relevant to the future. Understanding the interests and capabilities of our partners is one of the important challenges faced by us is to deliver effectively “more for less”. Mathematical excursions to the world’s great buildings HAHN, A. J ., Princeton University Press Oxford, 2012 This book takes readers on a tour of the elementary mathematics of some of the world’s most spectacular buildings and combines this with an in-depth look at their aesthetics, history, and structure. Hahn guides readers through Greek, Roman, Islamic, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and modern styles of architecture, exploring the Pantheon, Hagia Sophia, the Great Mosque of Cordoba, Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Duomo in Florence, Palladio’s villas, and the Capitol building in the United States. He also introduces some of history’s ground-breaking architects. 57 - Library.indd 57 57 - Library.indd 57 3/02/14 12:58 PM 3/02/14 12:58 PM
