Foreword to Concrete in Hot Environments PDF

Plain concrete is a brittle material, with low tensile strength and strain capacities. Nonetheless, with appropriate modifications to the material, and with appropriate design and construction methodologies, it is being used in increasingly sophisticated applications.

If properly designed, concrete structures can be produced to be durable over a wide range of environmental conditions, including hot and cold climates and aggressive exposure conditions such as in marine and highly polluted industrial zones.

Indeed, our understanding of cementitious systems has advanced to the point where these systems can often be ‘tailored’ for various applications where ordinary concretes are limited.

However, the results of the current research, which make these advances possible, are still either widely scattered in the journal literature, or mentioned only briefly in standard textbooks. Thus, they are often unavailable to the busy engineering professional.

The Modern Concrete Technology Series aims to provide a series of volumes that each deal with a single topic of interest in some depth.

Eventually, they will form a library of reference books covering all the major topics in modern concrete technology. Recent advances in concrete technology have been obtained using the traditional materials science approach:

  • characterization of the microstructure;
  • relationships between the microstructure and engineering properties;
  • relationships between the microstructural development and the processing techniques; and
  • selection of materials and processing methods to achieve composites with the desired characteristics.

Accordingly, each book in the series will cover both the fundamental scientific principles and practical applications.

Topics will be discussed in terms of the basic principles governing the behavior of the various cement composites, thus providing the reader with information valuable for engineering design and construction, as well as a proper background for assessing future developments.

The series will be of interest to practitioners involved in modern concrete technology, and will also be of use to academics, researchers, graduate students, and senior undergraduate students.

Concrete in Hot Environments, by Professor I.Soroka, is an additional book in this series, which focuses on the underlying processes governing the behavior of concrete in hot climates.

On this basis, it provides guidelines for the proper use and design of concrete exposed to such environmental conditions.

Preface to Concrete in Hot Environments PDF

The specific problems associated with concrete and concreting in hot environments have been recognized for some decades.

This recognition has manifested itself over the years at a few symposia and in hundreds of papers where relevant research results and field observations were presented and discussed.

In other publications, the practical conclusions from these available data and experiences have been summarised in the form of guidelines for hot climate concreting.

This book is not intended as one more guide, but mainly to explain the influence of hot environments on the properties and behavior of concrete, and to point out its practical implications.

However, in order to understand these effects, basic knowledge of cement paste and concrete is essential.

Although the author could have assumed that the reader either possesses the required knowledge or, when necessary, will consult other sources, he preferred to include, as far as possible, all the relevant information in the book.

Accordingly, sections of the book discuss cement and concrete in general, but the discussion is confined only to aspects relevant to the specific effects of hot environments.

It is believed that such a presentation makes it much easier for the reader to follow and understand the discussion adopted in this book.
