Prospects for stereology in civil engineering

Open Access

Documenten bij dit artikel



So far stereological techniques have not widely been used in civil engineering. Fertilizing effects may be expected from neighbouring engineering and other scientific fields. Three areas will be covered in a survey of nowadays use of stereological methods in civil engineering. However, the major contribution comes from building materials technology. New challenging areas in civil engineering, an increasing shortage of raw materials and strong developments in information technology will mark the route in the coming decades. As a consequence, civil engineers will be involved in major research efforts requiring a more extensive and frequent use of stereological techniques.

Keywords : building materials, fluid and soil mechanics, stereology
