At any given moment there are sophisticated Parisiennes drinking tea and nibbling at a Macaron on the Champs Elysees. No French patisserie can exist without a selection of mouth-watering colourful Macaroons. These melt-in-the-mouth fruity, nutty or creamy confections have been served in French palaces and chic salons for over three hundred years. In Irresistible Macaroons you'll learn how to make these fabulously decadent smooth almond meringues, sandwiched together with a rich ganache. Perfect as gifts, impressive as amuse bouches, join the likes of Carla Bruni, Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Rampling in their favourite secret indulgence. The famous Parisienne tea room Laduree is now in Harrods and the Pierre Herme boutique is selling macaroons at Selfridges.between conventional demolition and construction techniques before going on to discuss the preparation, refinement and quality control of concrete aggregates produced from waste. It concludes by assessing the mechanical properties, strength and durability of concrete made using recycled aggregates.Part three includes examples of the use of recycled aggregates in applications such as roads, pavements, high-performance concrete and alkali-activated or geopolymer cements. Finally, the book discusses environmental and safety issues such as the removal of gypsum, asbestos and alkali-silica reaction (ASR) concrete, as well as life-cycle analysis of concrete with recycled aggregates. Handbook of recycled concrete and demolition waste is a standard reference for all those involved in the civil engineering sector, as well as academic researchers in the field.
