  • About this book

  • The major feature of the book that makes it unique is that the theories and models provided are based on different level of observation (multi-scale approach)
  • Besides this, the research results and models are applicable
  • This makes the book interesting for both researchers who work on a lower scale level (micro, meso) and engineers who can apply the (lower scale) knowledge and models provided
  •  It bridges the gap between micro-level models and macro-level application

The book contains an overview and description of the main issues that go along with the hardening process of early age concrete.  The book contains 9 chapters which, in general terms, reflect the main results deduced from work done by the authors in collaboration with their PhD students. The purpose of the work is to provide researchers and PhD students a general basis of knowledge in the field of hardening concrete and to bridge the gap between academic research results and applicability in practice.

The book is intended for academic students and practitioners.
