Behaviour of plain concrete

  • A. L. Marshall

Abstract

From considering marine environmental loading in some of its primary manifestations it is appropriate now to turn to the structures intended to withstand it. However, this presupposes proper appreciation of the materials employed in construction since their effective, efficient, and economic use governs structural form, configuration, and integrity. Therefore in this chapter we first deal with concrete as a material in its own right while the following chapter is concerned with its composite use in reinforced and prestressed concrete.
