1 Introduction Structural elements of responsible objects function often under long-term static or cyclic force loading. The process of creep or fatigue, accompanied by the gradual accumulation of scattered damage, the formation and growth of macroscopic defects (fracture zones) are occurs under such a loading conditions. This problem, similarly as well as other aspects of reliability analysis [ 1 , 2 , 5 ], is very important for a reliable determination of long-term strength and lifetime. A description of above mentioned processes, which took the name
1 Scope The design of safe and durable concrete structures made from standard as well as high performance concretes, and the maintenance and rehabilitation of the built infrastructure, both require an in-depth understanding of the complex heterogenous aging composite material concrete. Questions pertaining to the ultimate capacity, serviceability, and durability, as time variant problems have to be faced in all phases of a concrete structure’s life-time, from design, operation and maintenance up to demolition. In the design phase, multi-decade predictions
It is my distinct pleasure to make this presentation of the TSRC Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr Bill Collins from NC State University. Bill is well known in academic and industry circles for his contributions to Tobacco Science. Some have suggested that Bill Collins is the single person most identified with flue-cured tobacco at NC State and probably world-wide.
