Successful Building Using Ecodesign

1st Edition

Christophe Gobin
October 10, 2018

The notion of ecodesign has now clearly become part of the building sector. It involves taking into consideration environmental issues that are indispensible in constructing our living environment. However, this method, which is industrial in origin, clearly shows that buildings are not the result...

Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions, Second Edition

2nd Edition

George G. Penelis, Gregory G. Penelis
October 04, 2018

Reinforced concrete (R/C) is one of the main building materials used worldwide, and an understanding of its structural performance under gravity and seismic loads, albeit complex, is crucial for the design of cost effective and safe buildings. Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions comprehensively...

2nd Edition

Xiaolin Chen, Yijun Liu
September 28, 2018

Finite Element Modeling and Simulation with ANSYS Workbench 18, Second Edition, combines finite element theory with real-world practice. Providing an introduction to finite element modeling and analysis for those with no prior experience, and written by authors with a combined experience of 30...

Concrete in Extreme Environments

1st Edition

John Bull, Ziangming Zhou
September 27, 2018

Contemporary events have shown that buildings designed to modern day codes need to be able to resist accidental extreme actions such as impact, explosions, weather, chemical and seismic events. This is one of the reasons for the present reviewing of the Eurocodes used to design concrete structures....

Ageing of Infrastructure: A Life-Cycle Approach

1st Edition

Frank Collins, Frédéric Blin
September 20, 2018

The book addresses the problem of ageing infrastructure and how ageing can reduce the service life below expected levels. The rate of ageing is affected by the type of construction material, environmental exposure, function of the infrastructure, and loading: each of these factors is considered in...

Multiscale Theory of Composites and Random Media

1st Edition

Xi Frank Xu
September 20, 2018

This is the first book to introduce Green-function-based multiscale theory and the corresponding finite element method, which are readily applicable to composites and random media. The methodology is considered to be the one that most effectively tackles the uncertainty of stress propagation in...
