Cementitious materials are heterogeneous on mutliple length scales, from nanometres to metres. Consequently, their macroscopic mechanical properties are affected by material structures at all length scales. In pursuit of fundamental understanding the relationship between their multiscale heterogeneous material structure and mechanical properties...

For the dimensioning of concrete structures it is customary to determine the forces and stresses occurring in construction elements on the basis of the prescribed loads. In an iterative process, the final dimensions of the elements and reinforcement are then determined. This process becomes less simple if not only the external loads, but also...

Chemical degradation of cementitious materials is a serious threat to the durability and performance of concrete structures. External sulfate attack is one of the situations that may cause gradual but severe damage. Sulfate ions present in seawater, rivers, groundwater and industrial effluent can penetrate into the hardened concrete, and react...

In concrete structures, it is always a preferable idea to prevent the damage before it happens rather than to repair it afterwards, since it is usually less costly and in some cases the damage detection is impossible. Temperature and humidity fluctuations and/or external loading can trigger micro-cracking on a concrete structure, which in turn...
