This study investigates the effects of the processing-induced defect population on the dynamic compressive strength and failure of a hot-pressed boron carbide. Quantitative microscopic analysis was used to determine the distributions of three types of processing-induced inhomogeneities: aluminum...
The most common detrimental processes that lead to reduction in durability in reinforced concrete elements are shrinkage, sulphate attack and chloride attack. Shrinkage is a dimensional instability chiefly caused by a loss of moisture in the hydrating cement paste. Soluble sulphate ions take part...
