Reinforced concrete is today the most important building material in building construction and civil engineering. It is a ‘young’ material, not much older than 150 years, which gained its importance for the building industry only on the basis of engineering research. The publication deals with the history of reinforced concrete construction, the materials and the causes of damage. Civil engineers, civil historians and architects will also demonstrate methods of ‘cautious’ restoration of historical reinforced concrete structures.
