Testing and Evaluation of Advanced Building Materials
The main aim of this collection was to provide a platform for academics, industrialists and students from various regions of China to exchange ideas and the state-of-the-art development in the field of building materials and testing techniques.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Finally, 53 papers were accepted for publication. The contents of papers include the microscopic theoretical model of the building materials, the characterization of the compositions and structures, performance testing and evaluation. The papers largely reflect the latest advances in the testing and evaluation theory and technology of building materials in China.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The 53 papers in this collection were selected for presentation during the First International Academic Symposium on Testing and Evaluation of Building Materials held in June 2012 in Shanghai, China. A sample of topics addressed includes: a kinetic study of Portland cement hydration with ground penetrating radar, shrinkage of blended cement pastes with mineral additions, a brief analysis of photovoltaic insulating glass in the process service, and environmentally friendly cellular concrete for wall insulation. Editor is Yao (Tongji U., China).
