Measuring long-term durability of new types of concrete and concrete technologies is crucial to their acceptance in the marketplace. This long-needed handbook of analytical techniques provides a complete reference to the cutting-edge procedures used to test today's innovative materials. Ranging from chemical and thermal analysis, to IR and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy, to Scanning Electron Microscopy, x-ray diffraction, computer modeling and more, the book provides first-hand explanations of modern methods - contributed by 24 leading scientists, many of whom actually developed or refined the techniques. The book includes methods applied to a wide range of organic, inorganic and composite materials and additives, providing useful tools for analyzing: Durability related to the mechanisms of reaction; Reactions affecting material propertied and service life; Suitability of new materials; Reasons for structural failures; Issues requiring new codes, standards and methods; New ways of predicting long-term materials and performance.
