Le Beton Arme

...the French term for reinforced concrete, and the title of a monthly magazine published between 1898 and 1939 to showcase this form of construction, patented by French engineer Francois Hennebique. This journal, a key source for the history of technology, has now been mostly digitised and made freely available through a collaboration between Ghent University and partners in Paris and London.
