Geology and settlement : Greco-Roman patterns

This learn explains the Greco-Roman city shape because it pertains to the geological foundation at chosen websites within the Mediterranean basin. all the sites--Argos, Delphi, Ephesus, and Syracuse between them--has manifested in its actual shape the geology on which it stood and from which it was once made. "By demonstrating the dependence of a gaggle of towns on its geological base," the writer writes, "the learn forces us to envision extra heavily the ecology of human payment, no longer as a collection of theories yet as a collection of functional constraints.

Cement and Concrete Chemistry

This monograph describes cement clinker formation. It covers multicomponent structures, clinker part buildings and their reactions with water, hydrate composition and constitution, in addition to their actual homes. The mineral additions to cement are defined as are their effect on cement-paste homes.
