The challenges facing humanity in the 21st century includeclimate change, population growth, overconsumption of resources,overproduction of waste and increasing energy demands. Forconstruction practitioners, responding to these challenges meanscreating a built environment that provides accommodation andinfrastructure with better whole-life performance using lowervolumes of primary materials, less non-renewable energy, wastingless and causing fewer disturbances to the naturalenvironment. Concrete is ubiquitous in the built environment.It is therefore essential that it is used in the most sustainableway so practitioners must become aware of the range of sustainableconcrete solutions available for construction. While sustainabledevelopment has been embedded into engineering curricula, it can bedifficult for students and academics to be fully aware of theinnovations in sustainable construction that are developed by theindustry. Sustainable Concrete Solutions serves as an introductionto and an overview of the latest developments in sustainableconcrete construction. It provides useful guidance, withfurther references, to students, researchers, academics andpractitioners of all construction disciplines who are faced withthe challenge of designing, specifying and constructing withconcrete.

Sustainable Construction Materials: Recycled Aggregate focuses on the massive systematic need that is necessary to encourage the uptake of recycled and secondary materials (RSM) in the construction industry. This book is the fifth and the last of the series on sustainable construction materials and like the previous four, it is also different to the norm. Its uniqueness lies in using the newly developed, Analytical Systemisation Method, in building the data-matrix sourced from 1413 publications, contributed by 2213 authors from 965 institutions in 67 countries, from 1977 to 2018, on the subject of recycled aggregate as a construction material, and systematically analysing, evaluating and modelling this information for use of the material as an aggregate concrete and mortar, geotechnics and road pavement applications. Environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. The work establishes what is already known and can be used to further progress the use of sustainable construction materials. It can also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources. The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner and is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, and government bodies dealing with construction works. Provides an exhaustive and comprehensively organized list of globally-based published literature spanning 5000 references Offers an analysis, evaluation, repackaging and modeling of existing knowledge that encourages more responsible use of waste materials Provides a wealth of knowledge for use in many sectors relating to the construction profession, including academia, research, practice and adoption of RSM

Concrete is a global material that underwrites commercial wellbeing and social development. There is no substitute that can be used on the same engineering scale and its sustainability, expolitation and further development are imperatives to creating and maintaing a healthy economy and environment worldwide. The pressure for change and improvement of performance is relentless and necessary. Concrete must keep evolving to satisfy the increasing demands of all its users.These six volumes are the proceedings of the international Challenges of Concrete Construction Congress held in September 2002 with contributions from many of the worlds leading authorities in this field.

Linking theory to practice, this book provides a better fundamental understanding of Portland cement and hydraulic binders which is necessary to make better concrete. It has been clearly demonstrated that concrete durability is closely linked to its water/binder ratio and proper curing during the first week after casting. In this rigorously presented work, Pierre-Claude Aïtcin explains the complexity of the hydration reaction and how to make, use and cure durable and sustainable concrete. This book also details the problems with Portland cement composition at present and outlines the concept of an ideal hydraulic binder which is technically and ecologically efficient, as well as being long-lasting and robust. Binders for Durable and Sustainable Concrete is a practical and innovative reference text which will be particularly relevant to engineers and chemists working in the Portland cement, concrete and admixture industries. This book will also be of interest to academics and graduate-level students in Civil Engineering departments who specialize in Portland cement and concrete technology.
