|Scientists are continually making exciting discoveries concerning the interactions between microbes and plants, interactions which may be damaging, in the case of plant pathogens, or beneficial, as in the case of nitrogen fixation. This new volume in the successful and well received Chapman & Hall Plant-Microbe Interaction series is an exciting and broad-ranging view of the outstanding work being done in this area. *Author: Stacey, Gary/ Keen, Noel T. *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 187 *Publication Date: 1997/07/31 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.18 x 6.17 x 0.73 inches|
From the Publisher:
Well designed, constructed and maintained reinforced or prestressed concrete structures are generally very durable. In aggressive environments though, corrosion of steel can be a significant problem and structures such as bridges, industrial buildings and those subjected to marine conditions can be particularly at risk. Over the last decade there has been fast growing interest in reinforcing concrete with fibre reinforced plastic materials which cannot rust or deteriorate like steel. This proceedings of the Second International RILEM Symposium on the subject, held in Ghent, August 1995, deals with a wide range of non-metallic materials and opens up possibilities of lighter, more durable structures. The contributions by leading international researchers and design engineers are divided into parts covering material development and properties, bond behaviour of FRP elements, structural behaviour of reinforced and prestressed concrete members, rehabilitation and strengthening, and design methods and applications. This complete overview of knowledge on the subject will provide an essential update for structural engineers, concrete specialists and researchers into materials and structures.
