Though quite unlike what would be understood as concrete today, this experiment nevertheless galvanized the interest of engineers across Ireland and Britain, leading to a seismic shift in the accepted constructive techniques for harbour structures.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Harbour; Stone; Concrete||Other versions:||https://aiarg2017conference.com/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||6th All-Ireland Architecture Research Group conference (AIARG 2017), Waterford Institute of Technology, Waterford, Ireland, 27-28 January 2017||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
