By Mat Santamouris

Advances in construction strength examine deals state of the art details at the environmental technology and function of constructions, linking new applied sciences and methodologies with the newest learn on platforms, simulations and criteria. As stringently reviewed as a magazine yet with the breadth of a booklet, this annual quantity brings jointly invited contributions from the main overseas specialists on strength potency and environmental caliber of constructions. Spanning a extensive diversity of technical matters, it is a ''must have'' reference on international advancements within the box, compatible for architects and development engineers, environmental engineers, pros, scholars, lecturers and researchers in construction technology, technical libraries and laboratories.
