"Yes, concrete can be cold and imposing - but as the structures in [Concrete] attest, it can also be colorful, playful, and delicate." - The Wall Street Journal "The book is a vivid reminder of the sheer endurance, unexpected delicacy, and humor of architecture's humble hero." - Architectural Digest/5(24).

Staining the plain gray concrete created a unique look Plain gray concrete looks as cheap as it sounds, but now I've got a jade Green and walnut chessboard that cost me less than $4 per piece to make, including the stain.

Easy to use, and some experimentation with wetting concrete will create a varied look. Concrete Poetry, Concrete Book: Artists' Books in German-Speaking Space after Following World War II and with increasing intensity in the s and s, artists working throughout Western Europe challenged established aesthetic and political paradigms by exploring new Experimentation in concrete book media and techniques.

According to Kolb, learners perceive and process information in a continuum from concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation: Concrete experience: being involved in a new experience ; Reflective observation: watching others or developing observations about one’s own experience.

Exhibition--Concrete Poetry, Concrete Book: Artists’ Books in German-speaking Space after In the same decades that artists affiliated with Fluxus explored action-based, performative strategies set on disrupting the conventions of both art and everyday life, the book emerged as.

Musique concrète (French: [myzik kɔ̃kʁɛt]; lit. '"concrete music"') is a type of music composition that utilizes recorded sounds as raw material (Editors ).Sounds are often modified through the application of audio effects and tape manipulation techniques, and may be assembled into a form of montage (Editors ).It can feature sounds derived from recordings of musical instruments Derivative forms: Industrial music, noise music.

Kendra Cherry, MS, is an author, educational consultant, and speaker focused on helping students learn about psychology. As the name suggests, experiential learning involves learning from experience. The theory was proposed by psychologist David Kolb who was influenced by the work of other theorists including John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, and Jean.

Mothership Workshop is the art and furniture design studio of Josh Zeis and Mike Nelson. Together the two friends design, build, and create work of all sorts, but specialize in concrete.

The majority of time spent at the studio is spent designing and fabricating concrete sculptural pieces, countertops, furniture, accent pieces such as lamps. Interest in testing of hardened concrete in-situ has increased considerably since the s, and significant advances have been made in techniques, equipment, and methods of application since publication of the first edition of this book in This has largely been a result of the growing number of concrete structures.

The first concrete reinforced bridge is built. The addition of gypsum when grinding clinker to act as a retardant to the setting of concrete was introduced in the USA. Vertical shaft kilns were replaced with rotary kilns and ball mills were used for grinding cement. George Bartholomew placed the first concrete street in the USA in.

The bond between concrete and reinforcement bars is very important to develop the composite behaviour of reinforced concrete. Bond strength is influenced by several factors such as bar diameter.

presented a critical antidote. For these reasons, the book remained a surprisingly persistent artistic form in a period of radical experimentation in art that emphasized increasingly visceral and participatory modes of production and reception.

In tandem with the UChicago Arts Program Concrete Happenings that celebrates the return to campus. Concrete Thomas Bernhard How often does it happen to you that you pick up a book and after leafing through a few pages you feel your heart starts pounding with an unknown fear, as if your structure would no longer be able to contain it enclosed within and it would come out of your body and the world around you may collapse at once, to realize that probably the book, you're reading, is /5.

Experimental music is a general label for any music that pushes existing boundaries and genre definitions (Anon. & n.d.(c)).Experimental compositional practice is defined broadly by exploratory sensibilities radically opposed to, and questioning of, institutionalized compositional, performing, and aesthetic conventions in music ().Elements of experimental music include indeterminate music, in.

Design of concrete made with novel materials is currently not feasible without extensive experimentation as no design rules exist other than empirically derived rules based on traditional materials.

Drawing on the remarkable collection of rare artists’ books housed in the University of Chicago Library, “Concrete Poetry, Concrete Book: Artists’ Books in German-speaking Space after ” explores how artists in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland investigated the material and technical forms of the book.

What makes this book different is its concise nature and practical examples meant to not only inspire you, but to impart concrete ideas about how to apply lean experimentation in the real world.

View @leanexpinaction’s profile on Twitter. An experimental study of C20, C25, C30, C40, and C50 big mobility concrete cubes that came from laboratory and construction site was completed. Nondestructive testing (NDT) was carried out using impact rebound hammer (IRH) techniques to establish a correlation between the compressive strengths and the rebound number.

The local curve for measuring strength of the regression method is set up Cited by: experimentation and the choice of new experiences. Kolb refers to these four stages as concrete experi- ence (CE), reflective observation (RO), abstract con- ceptualization (AC), and active experimentation (AE).

They follow each other in a cycle (Figure 1). The cycle may be entered at any point, but the stages should be followed in sequence. About the Book.

Pierre Schaeffer’s In Search of a Concrete Music (À la recherche d’une musique concrète) has long been considered a classic text in electroacoustic music and sound recording. Now Schaeffer’s pioneering work—at once a journal of his experiments in sound composition and a treatise on the raison d’être of “concrete music”—is available for the first time in.

Lea's Chemistry of Cement and Concrete, Fifth Edition, examines the suitability and durability of different types of cements and concretes, their manufacturing techniques and the role that aggregates and additives play in achieving concrete's full potential of delivering a high-quality, long-lasting, competitive and sustainable product.

Description Experimentation in concrete FB2

Synopsis. 7 out of 10 new products fail to deliver on expectations. Testing Business Ideas aims to reverse that statistic. In the tradition of the global bestseller Business Model Generation, this practical guide contains a library of hands-on techniques for rapidly testing new business ideas to reduce the risk of failure.

The book explains how systematically testing business ideas can. Virginia's Experimentation With Asphalt Rubber Concrete G. MAUPIN, JR. The installation of test sections containing asphalt rubber concrete using the wet process and the testing of samples of the materials in the laboratory are described.

Also, some preliminary test data from a laboratory study using both coarse and fine crumb tireFile Size: 3MB. As in the first edition, this book adopts a step-by-step approach to solving analysis and design problems in reinforced concrete.

Using a highly graphical and interactive approach in its use of detailed images and self-experimentation exercises, “Concrete Structures, Second Edition,” is. Experimentation in concrete: John J.

This book presents an in-depth approach to concrete ingredients and their relationships to concrete by discussing their properties, pertinent test methods, specifications, proper use, proper selection, and problems in practice and their approach is practice oriented, and the book aims to assist in the improved application of concrete through a thorough understanding of its.

The book is a current, organized summary of knowledge concerning concrete-making materials, which will enable the engineer/user to make the best possible product using these materials.

Readership Technologists, practitioners, engineers, architects, concrete manufacturers, material scientists, cement scientists, students.Book Description. Despite tremendous advances made in fracture mechanics of concrete in recent years, very little information has been available on the nature of fracture processes and on reliable test methods for determining parameters for the different models.2 Educational Learning Theories edited by Molly Y.
