Concrete Technology for Cast In-situ Foundations (CIRIA by Neil A. Henderson

By Neil A. Henderson

Concrete expertise for solid in-situ foundations specializes in the concrete know-how concerns in relation to universal buried origin varieties together with piles, diaphragm partitions and pad, strip and raft foundations. This record presents assistance at the research and building parameters to be thought of within the collection of in-situ concrete for origin purposes. The record additionally discusses environmental matters and sustainable building practices. It offers the dressmaker, the contractor, and the concrete manufacturer with present assistance at the program of in-situ concrete expertise for origin functions. It presents information at the research of sturdiness and construction-related parameters to be thought of within the collection of in-situ concrete for starting place purposes. The file relies on a close evaluate of released literature, session with specialists and practitioners in the box, and case stories demonstrating strong perform and highlighting serious matters.

Rescuing Prometheus: Four Monumental Projects that Changed Our World

"A infrequent perception into commercial making plans on an incredible scale. .. very good. " --The Economist

Rescuing Prometheus is an eye-opening and marvelously informative examine the various technological initiatives that assisted in shaping the fashionable global. Thomas P. Hughes makes a speciality of 4 postwar tasks whose vastness and complexity encouraged new know-how, new corporations, and new administration kinds. the 1st use of desktops to run platforms used to be built for the SAGE air protection undertaking. The Atlas missile undertaking used to be so advanced it required the improvement of platforms engineering in an effort to entire it. The Boston relevant Artery/Tunnel undertaking proven structures engineering within the complicated crucible of a giant scale civilian roadway. and eventually, the origins of the web fostered the collegial administration sort that later could take over Silicon Valley and outline the trendy desktop undefined. With prepared perception, Hughes tells those interesting tales whereas supplying a riveting heritage of contemporary know-how and the administration platforms that made it possible.

Thomas P. Hughes is Emeritus Mellon Professor of the heritage and Sociology of technological know-how on the collage of Pennsylvania and a Fellow of the yankee Academy of Arts and Sciences. His books comprise American Genesis: A Century of Invention and know-how. at the moment a exceptional vacationing Professor at MIT, he lives in Philadelphia.

Ideally, especially where more critical elements and circumstances are concerned, trial mixes with temperature-matched curing may be carried out to assess the likely in-situ temperature variations and strength development of the specified concrete. 2). When concretes contain additions such as pfa, ggbs, sf, and mk it is likely that the strength development characteristics will differ from a similar concrete using PC only, 36 CIRIA C569 and will be affected by the relative proportion of the additions.

SCC represents “new” technology and although it has been used successfully in many projects, notably in Japan, there is currently relatively little experience and no formal guidance regarding its specification and use in the UK. However, in the future, SCC seems likely to become an important concrete technology for a range of in-situ concrete foundation applications, particularly deep foundations and those with congested reinforcement. The Japanese government is currently giving support to a plan to use SCC in half of all concrete placed in Japan by 2003 (Jones, 1999), but here are very few examples of 34 ClRlA C569 SCC being used in major projects in the UK.

Concrete with the desired performance can usually be made with these materials if it is specified and designed correctly. The type and grading of coarse and fine aggregate present in concrete influences a number of its fresh properties (workability, water demand, bleeding, segregation, thermal expansion) and hardened properties (strength, stiffness, shrinkage, susceptibility to deterioration through chemical attack and abrasion). Guidance on suitability of various aggregate sizes, gradings and proportions is included in standard 48 CIRIA C569 design codes, however a number of other aggregate-related properties are of particular relevance to the design and specification of foundation concrete.
