An article in our newest, sponsored e-book explores design considerations for rail post anchorage into concrete. It appears along with a trio of articles from the pages of The Construction Specifier in Concrete Building Design, a free, downloadable resource.
The magazine’s series of sponsored e-books continues with a discussion on the sustainability aspects of concrete. Concrete is a relatively low-impact material, not only due to its durability, long service life, and recyclability, but also because of increasing investments in sustainable manufacturing technologies.
Building for durability of concrete infrastructure in severe environments is an ongoing challenge for contractors and engineers. Using a performance-related design method offers a good strategy for extending service life by taking a long-term approach to mitigating corrosion.
