This book provides a unified description of transport processes involving saturated and unsaturated flow in inorganic building materials and structures. The book emphasizes fundamental physics and materials science, mathematical description and experimental measurement as a basis for engineering design and construction practice.
Water Transport in Brick, Stone and Concrete brings together in a unified manner current information and guidance on a complex subject. Durability of much of the built infrastructure depends on how water reacts with the construction material concerned, yet the underlying science of deterioration processes is not yet well understood. This book, by the two leading researchers in the fields will provide a central point of reference for the future.
