"The application on the 'The Pantheon' where it uses pumice aggregate in the construction of cast in-situ concrete," according to Hjh Kamsiah Mohd Ismail, Mohamad Shazli Fathi and Norpadzlihatun bte Manaf (2003), all with the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Institutional Repository, confirms the Romans use of lightweight concrete.
In the journal article, "Study of lightweight concrete behavior," Ismail, Fathi and Manaf recount that during the late nineteenth century, American and English builders used clinker, a form of lightweight concrete in their construction projects like the British Museum as well as in low cost housing.
D'Annunzio (2003), reports "the use of lightweight concrete as a roof decking and insulation system has expanded in the past five years.
In conjunction with the traditional methods, artificial intelligent based modeling methods have been applied to simulate the non-linear and complex behavior of concrete in the recent years.
Twenty one laboratory experimental investigations on the mechanical properties of LWSCC; published in recent 12 years have been analyzed in this study.
The MCP Online contains all new committee standards and reports released throughout the year.
Abstract The innovation of relevant nanotechnology and its significance in civil engineering practice is illustrated in this paper for broadening vision.
