Steel is particularly dominant in the design and construction of bigger structures and structures with unusual geometry because of its large strength to weight ratio and the ability to economically fabricate and erect complex structures. The steel industry is continually pressed to develop improved material performance, higher strength, and more ductile materials and structural systems, because these attributes enhance this evolution. 2 Issues of concern The prior discussion of the evolution of the application of steel in civil engineering practice raises several dominant issues for engineering design, research and development of steel structures.

For durability issues, the book by Richardson (2002) provides a comprehensive overview. Taylor’s (1997) book on cement chemistry provides a detailed description of the chemistry of cement hydration, and is essential reading for a truly fundamental understanding of concrete behavior. The many publications and Advanced concrete for use in civil engineering 27 committee reports of the American Concrete Institute provide the most upto-date information on concrete from a North American perspective. Similarly, the various RILEM publications are oriented more to a European perspective.
