    Modern Earth Buildings: Materials, Engineering, Constructions and Applications Earth has been used as a building material for centuries, providing local communities with a sustainable and durable material from which homes and other buildings are constructed. Earthen construction has developed over time to become one of the predominant building types worldwide, with many different examples of traditional and modern earth buildings across Africa, Asia, Australia, North America and Europe.
    This book critically reviews the development and application of earth materials, earth building design and earth construction techniques. The beginning reviews the overall status of earth construction as an option for low-impact and sustainable building design. This coverage is complemented by chapters on earth block building and rammed earth construction, structural reinforcement and internal and external earth building components. The final section reviews regional applications and case studies to highlight the use and utility of modern earthen building construction in different areas and different climates worldwide.

    Traditional Building Materials

    by Matthew Slocombe ISBN: 9780747808404 ISBN-13: 9780747808404
    [ hide overview ]

    Traditional Building Materials Steel and glass now dominate modern British cities, but the country can still boast millions of older houses constructed of more traditional building materials. Many date from the period before easy nationwide transportation, when these materials were usually grown on or extracted from land in the locality. As a result, Britain has a varied legacy of vernacular buildings that echoes its multitude of different landscapes. They display a rich and colourful palette of materials from the honey-coloured stone of the Cotswolds, to the red earth of Devon and grey granite of Aberdeen. In this book, buildings historian Matthew Slocombe explores the way in which locally produced constructional resources have shaped Britain's architectural heritage, whether workers' cottages or country houses. He looks at the range of materials used for walls and roof coverings, and explores the processes needed for their extraction, production and manufacture. He also considers the wealth of craft skills required for their use, including masonry, carpentry, roofing, leadwork and much more. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).

  • Sustainability of Concrete
    April 2011
    by Pierre-Claude Aitcin, Sidney Mindess ISBN: 0415571960 ISBN-13: 9780415571968
    [ hide overview ]

    Sustainability of Concrete Production of Portland cement is responsible for about seven percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. The pressure to make the production of concrete more sustainable, or "greener", is considerable and increasing. This requires a wholesale shift in processes, materials and methods in the concrete industry. Pure Portland cement will need to be replaced by more complex binary, tertiary or even quaternary binders, including other types of cementitious materials. We can expect an increasing use of high performance concrete, primarily because of its high sustainability and durability. Much more attention will have to be paid to the proper curing of the concrete if we want to improve its life expectancy.
    Presenting the latest advances in the science of concrete this book focuses particularly on sustainability, durability, and economy. It explores the potential for increased sustainability in concrete from the initial mixing right through to its behaviour in complex structures exposed to different types of loads and aggressive environments.
