Recent events worldwide have again highlighted the need for effective emergency measures for hazards connected with the process industries and the large scale storage of dangerous substances. The Commission of the European Communities, DG XI, in collaboration with the JRC Ispra Establishment, has therefore organised the...
Computer Modelling of Concrete Mixtures
Computer Modelling of Concrete Mixtures
While the traditional procedure of making trial mixes is now unnecessary, expensive and time consuming, the data generated can be incorporated into the development of computer-based systems and combined with knowledge from research and practice. The author has developed systems by which a small amount of materials data can be used to predict the...
