Abstract

Chapters cover the history of the material, the properties of plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete, surface finishes, the basic engineering principles of large and small structures and the building requirements with respect to thermal and sound insulation, fire protection and moisture control, reflecting the most recent standards and statutory instruments. Finally, a large number of built examples are presented - from photographs of the completed structures down to detailed plans - to illustrate the broad spectrum of applications for concrete in contemporary building. This volume demonstrates the potential of concrete and documents comprehensively the engineering principles of using concrete in construction.

Abstract

With its virtually infinite plasticity, its constructional versatility, and its simple and straightforward building technology, concrete is the building material of the present. In addition to careful design and constructional planning, the invitation of bids and the building contract are the keys to a successful implementation. Building with Concrete provides the basic information needed to work with the material, with special attention to the architect's role in planning and construction management. It describes current trends in concrete technology and the development of innovative new types of concrete, with firsthand reports by architects in the field. It also describes the new version of the DBV/BDZ data sheet "Exposed Concrete."

Abstract

"Dyslexie is bij vele studenten de oorzaak van onnodige studievertraging en studie-uitval. Drie tot vijf procent van de studentenpopulatie heeft dyslexie. Het boek verschaft informatie over kritische momenten tijdens de studie, signalering door docenten en mentoren, regelingen en voorzieningen. Via een inventarisatielijst studieproblemen en een checklist meervoudige intelligentie kunnen zwakke en sterke punten in kaart worden gebracht. Daarna biedt het boek direct ondersteunende tips voor de oplossing van de studieproblemen. Daarbij wijst het ook op de mogelijkheden met computerprogramma’s. Een laatste deel behandelt de steeds terugkerende discussiepunten rond dyslexie in het onderwijs en geeft suggesties voor de aanpak binnen onderwijsinstellingen. Deze uitgave is in de eerste plaats geschreven voor studenten met dyslexie. Uiteraard is het boek evenzeer van belang voor hun docenten, mentoren, begeleiders enz. Maar ook leerlingbegeleiders in het voortgezet onderwijs vinden hier meteen toepasbare informatie."
