 About the Book 

This state-of-the-art volume covers the latest and future trends in measuring, monitoring and modeling the properties of cement based materials including computational and experimental micro-mechanical modeling of high-performance cementitiousMoreThis state-of-the-art volume covers the latest and future trends in measuring, monitoring and modeling the properties of cement based materials including computational and experimental micro-mechanical modeling of high-performance cementitious composites (HPFRCs), mechanical behavior and fracture of conventional and new cement based composites, advanced methods for crack detection in concrete, realistic assessment and modeling for mechanical behavior of early age concrete, autogenous shrinkage and microcracking in heterogeneous systems, quantitative image analysis for microstructural characterization of concrete, development of innovative cementitious materials, composition of concretes with special rheological properties, new concepts for the processing of repair and rehabilitation measures of concrete structures and historic building materials, bond characteristics and structural behavior of fiber reinforced plastics and hybrid fabrics, and modeling of textile reinforced concrete.This book contains 94 papers presented at the four day International Symposium Measuring, Monitoring and Modeling Concrete Properties (MMMCP), dedicated to Professor Surendra P. Shah, Northwestern University, USA. The event was held within the context of the 16th European Conference of Fracture (ECF16), at the Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece, July 3-7, 2006. The book presents the latest research work of renowned experts in the area of cement and concrete sciences and is useful for the student, the engineer and the researcher who wants to get an integrated picture of the recent developments in the area of experimental and computational methods of measuring, monitoring and modeling concrete properties.
