This work - formerly Durability of Structures - discusses the durability of construction materials in a variety of structures and in diverse environmental conditions. A wealth of information including numerous examples and case studies is provided by a team of international experts. The chapters illustrate the durability of elements in a structure, materials performance and identification and resolution of problems. The book is liberally illustrated and provides a useful work of practical reference in this important subject.
