This volume traces the process by which reinforced concrete emerged
during the 19th century as the successful building material of
today. Early work on testing the strength of cements led into a
period of experimental work by a number of engineers, notably in
Britain, France and America, to devise successful systems of
embedding iron in concrete in such a way that the two materials
would act together to carry imposed loads. The papers take the
story to the early years of the 20th century and provide a thorough
review of the gradual evolution of ideas and the contributions of
individuals to this technology.
