Creep, Shrinkage and Durability of Concrete and Concrete Structures
CONCREEP – 7
Publication Date: September 2005 Hardback 656 pp.
Creep, shrinkage and durability of concrete and concrete structures have been a traditional conference topic for almost fifty years. This volume contains contributions from presentations at CONCREEP – 7, held September 12th – September 14th, 2005 at Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. These papers cover the latest results and implementation strategies of creep, shrinkage and durability mechanics research at the interface of solid mechanics, materials science, experimental mechanics, and computational mechanics of concrete-like materials, and the related structural engineering problems.
