系列学术讲座：Damage to Concrete Structures
Lecture series by Prof. G. De Schutter, Ghent University, Belgium.
The lectures will summarize the state-of-the-art information on the degradation of concrete structures, and will give a clear and comprehensive overview of what can go wrong. Offering a logical flow, the lectures are ordered according to the chronological timing of the actions leading to concrete damage，and will explain the different actions or mechanisms in a fundamental manner.The different causes of damage to concrete, including inappropriate design, errors during execution, mechanisms occurring during hardening of concrete, and actions or degradation mechanisms during service life (hardened concrete) will be described in the course. The degradation mechanisms are illustrated with numerous real-world examples of actual structures. The lectures will provide a deeper understanding of the damage that can occur to concrete during the construction process and service life.
