Transport Processes in Concrete presents a comprehensive survey of the physical and chemical processes and transport mechanisms in concrete, and analyses their significance for the movement of heat, moisture and chemical compounds.

A critical analysis of the available mathematical models is given, and from this analysis the most suitable models to describe transport processes in concrete are selected. The authors provide an overview of methods for determining field variables and transport and storage parameters, and demonstrate the practical application of computational modelling of transport processes in the design of concrete structures.

This book presents a practical methodology for researchers and practitioners in the field of concrete technology and durability.
