Sustainability of Construction Materials - Woodhead Publishing

Until recently, much of the development of building materials has predominantly focused on producing cheaper, stronger and more durable construction materials. More recently attention has been given to the environmental issues in manufacturing, using, disposing and recycling of construction materials. Sustainability of construction materials brings together a wealth of recent research on the subject.

Construction Hazardous Materials Compliance Guide - Asbestos Detection, Abatement and Inspection Procedures

Construction Worksite Compliance Guide to Asbestos provides the contractors, building owners and inspectors with the current best management practices for asbestos removal and disposal methods.

Crack Analysis in Structural Concrete from Elsevier

This new book on the fracture mechanics of concrete focuses on the latest developments in computational theories, and how to apply those theories to solve real engineering problems. Zihai Shi uses his extensive research experience to present detailed examination of multiple-crack analysis and mixed-mode fracture.

Concrete Portable Handbook from Elsevier

Whether or not, you are on the job site or back in the office, thisConcrete Portable Handbook will help you to avoid mistakes, code violations, and wasted time and money. The book’s four part treatment begins with constituent materials followed by self contained parts on Concrete Properties, Processes, and Concrete Repair and Rehabilitation.

Construction Hazardous Material Compliance Guide - Lead Detection, Abatement and Inspection Procedures

Written for those who plan to supervise daily work activities on a lead-related construction work site and/or prepare lead abatement work plans, Construction Worksite Compliance Guide: Lead covers the latest industry standards for the abatement and proper disposal of lead on the worksite.

Welding Deformation and Residual Stress Prevention

Although the problem is well researched, there are very few tools to meet the demand. Welding Deformation and Residual Stress Prevention provides a unique computational approach to the prediction of the effects of deformation and residual stress on materials.

Elsevier Book: Handbook of Environmental Engineering Assessment, 1st Edition

Handbook of Environmental Engineering Assessment, 1st Edition Strategy, Planning, and Management Author(S) : R Jain Expected Date of Publication: 27 Jun 2012 Imprint: Butterworth-Heinemann ISBN: 9780123884442

Concrete Structures - Protection, Repair and Rehabilitation from Elsevier

The success of a repair or rehabilitation project depends on the specific plans designed for it. Concrete Structures: Protection, Repair and Rehabilitation provides guidance on evaluating the condition of the concrete in a structure, relating the condition of the concrete to the underlying cause or causes of that condition, selecting an appropriate repair material and method for any deficiency found, and using the selected materials and methods to repair or rehabilitate the structure.

Failure, Distress and Repair of Concrete Structures - Woodhead Publishing

Understanding and recognising failure mechanisms in concrete is a fundamental pre-requisite to determining the type of repair, or whether a repair is feasible. This title provides a review of concrete deterioration and damage, as well as looking at the problem of defects in concrete. It also discusses condition assessment and repair techniques.

Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures from Elsevier

Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures provides an introduction to the use of linear programming techniques for plastic analysis. This powerful and advanced method for plastic analysis is important in an automated computational environment, in particular for non-linear structural analysis.

Reinforced Concrete at Elevated Temperatures from Elsevier

With Reinforced Concrete at Elevated Temperatures, engineers and architects can effectively analyze the effect of high temperature on concrete and materials which will lead to better designs of fire resistant and damage evaluation and treatment after fire.
