While enormous progress has been made towards sustainability, the scope and opportunities for improvements are significant. To further the effort for sustainable development, a conference on Sustainable Construction Materials and Technologies was held at Coventry University, Coventry, U.K., from June 11th - 13th, 2007, to highlight case studies and research on new and innovative ways of achieving sustainability of construction materials and technologies. This book presents selected, important contributions made at the conference. Over 190 papers from over 45 countries were accepted for presentation at the conference, of which approximately 100 selected papers are published in this book. The rest of the papers are published in two supplementary books. Topics covered in this book include: sustainable alternatives to natural sand, stone, and Portland cement in concrete; sustainable use of recyclable resources such as fly ash, ground municipal waste slag, pozzolan, rice-husk ash, silica fume, gypsum plasterboard (drywall), and lime in construction; sustainable mortar, concrete, bricks, blocks, and backfill; the economics and environmental impact of sustainable materials and structures; use of construction and demolition wastes, and organic materials (straw bale, hemp, etc.) in construction; sustainable use of soil, timber, and wood products; and related sustainable construction and rehabilitation technologies.

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.

The human race is progressively changing its socioeconomic system in an effort to solve its resource, energy and environmental problems. The building and construction industry plays a critical role in economic and social development. By providing a first-rate built environment, it contributes to our continuing economic competitiveness and the quality of life of everyone who visits us or lives and works here. The construction materials industry is a major user of the world's resources. While enormous progress has been made towards sustainability, the scope and opportunities for further improvements are significant. Sustainable construction will enhance the resilience of our building and construction industry by using materials and resources that are available from many sources in the world. It also means adopting construction methods that are environmentally friendly, faster, quieter and less labor-intensive. Sustainable Construction Materials provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the sustainability of a variety of construction materials ranging from sustainable alternatives for aggregates and cementitious materials in concrete; making concrete sustainable; the economics and environmental impact of sustainable materials; sustainable use of gypsum, lime, soil, natural fibers, wood, and other organic materials; and sustainable construction methods and technologies. Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact on the natural environment by: efficiently using energy, water, and other resources; reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation. The green concrete's application in the green building movement. Related environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. This book serves as a valuable guide to students, researchers, research scholars, teachers, authors and other professionals in the field of research in sustainable construction materials and technologies subjects as well as for anyone involved in the construction and civil engineering industries with an interest in the highly important topic of sustainability.

This book was released on 2002-07-01 with total page 255 pages. Book excerpt: Since the mid-1980s, and in particular the 1992 environmental summit in Rio de Janeiro, sustainability has become a global issue and the subject of international debate. In the context of architecture sustainability implies the use of intelligent technology, innovative construction methods, ecologically friendly materials and use of environmentally-friendly energy resources. This book begins with an overview of the various approaches and developments in sustainable architecture, followed by an in-depth section on urbanism looking at several European towns. In the third section the technologies, materials and methods of ecological architecture are examined. Concluding the volume are 23 sophisticated and innovative European case studies. The author and architect Dominique Gauzin-Müller has specialised on energy and environmental issues and ecological architecture for over 15 years.
