This book provides a complete and clear introduction to the use of adhesives to form load-bearing joints in bridges, civil engineering and building structures.
Recent advances in adhesive technology have led to a rapid growth in the use of adhesives in load-bearing joints in civil engineering applications such as buildings and bridges. In many cases, the use of adhesives can prove more convenient, less expensive, stronger and more durable than traditional method of joining.
