Ground Chemistry: Implications for Construction

£50.00

Product description

Since the 1970s and 1980s, there has been an increasing awareness of the importance of ground chemistry in construction. The disturbance of the status quo as a consequence of engineering works has given rise to many problematic situations, created new problems and exacerbated existing ones. Changes in such conditions as ground water, temperature and the weathering state of the exposed material led to chemical reactions which may induce aggressivity, facilitate the formation of new materials with different volumes, or create environments particularly conductive to the proliferation of bacteria. It has been only recently that the dynamic and interactive relationship of such processes has been appreciated.

Bringing together representatives of the various disciplines involved in ground chemistry, the proceedings of this conference present case histories and research topics.
