Description Concrete Petrography de Alan B. Poole:

Written by leading experts in the field, Concrete Petrography is a unique and invaluable part of the literature on the material properties of concrete. It covers all aspects of the petrographic study of hardened concrete and related materials, from the selection of sample material and its preparation as petrographic specimens to a detailed discussion of the methods of examination and equipment. The core of the book is the review of the features of concrete that can be observed and identified using a petrological microscope. Defects, deterioration and failures in concrete are explained, and the observations and petrographic evidence that demonstrate their presence are illustrated. The clear descriptions and illustrations make it easy for engineers and petrographers alike to identify precisely the causes of the properties they can observe in a concrete sample, leading to more accurate and timely diagnosis and treatment of problems in structural concrete. Dr. Alan Poole began his career as a geologist before becoming a consultant specializing in the petrography of aggregates, concrete and related materials. He gained a wide experience of both the practical and research aspects of alkali-aggregate reaction in concrete working both in the UK and abroad. He is involved in specialist post-graduate training, with British and European standards committees and with technical working parties. Dr. Ian Sims is a director of RSK Environment Ltd in the UK, where he is responsible for their Materials Consultancy team (including their Petrography Laboratory) and expert witness services. He is Chairman of the British Standards aggregates committee- and previously Secretary of the Geological Society (Engineering Group) working parties on Aggregates, Stone and Clay materials for construction, also their working party on Hot Deserts: engineering, geology and geomorphology, and of the RILEM international technical committees on alkali-aggregate reactivity in concrete (1988 to 2014).
