The pressure to make the production of concrete more sustainable, or “greener”, is considerable and increasing. This requires a wholesale shift in processes, materials and methods in the concrete industry. Presenting the latest advances in the science of concrete, this book focuses particularly on sustainability, durability, and economic factors. It explores the potential for increased sustainability from the initial mixing right through to the concrete substance’s behavior in complex structures exposed to different types of loads and aggressive environments.
