Sing-Ping Chiew, Yan-Qing Cai
April 12, 2018

This book is the companion volume to Design of High Strength Steel Reinforced Concrete Columns – A Eurocode 4 Approach. This book provides a large number of worked examples for the design of high strength steel reinforced concrete (SRC) columns. It is based on the Eurocode 4 approach, but goes...

Concrete and Mortar Production using Stone Siftings

Leonid Dvorkin, Vadim Zhitkovsky, Yuri Ribakov
April 02, 2018

The monograph analyses the state of the art (problem) in using stone siftings and aspiration dust obtained in natural stone crushing for producing concrete aggregates and fillers for dry construction mixtures and mortars on their basis. The influence of disperse fraction in stone siftings and...

Managing Complex Construction Projects: A Systems Approach

John K. Briesemeister
March 15, 2018

To many program, project, or construction managers, a complex project seems to be a labyrinth with many hidden dangers. This book is a guide through that labyrinth. It explains best practices and provides insight so they cannot only identify hidden dangers but also effectively manage the...
