Abstract

Chapters cover the history of the material, the properties of plain, reinforced and prestressed concrete, surface finishes, the basic engineering principles of large and small structures and the building requirements with respect to thermal and sound insulation, fire protection and moisture control, reflecting the most recent standards and statutory instruments. Finally, a large number of built examples are presented - from photographs of the completed structures down to detailed plans - to illustrate the broad spectrum of applications for concrete in contemporary building. This volume demonstrates the potential of concrete and documents comprehensively the engineering principles of using concrete in construction.

Abstract

Steel is one of the most versatile materials available in the construction industry and its many applications have enabled architects and engineers to go far beyond what was once considered possible. This volume documents all aspects of steels as a construction material, first looking at the historical development of building with steel. This is followed by several chapters which examine to a high degree of technical detail the physical properties of the material, the principles of construction utilizing steel and the wide range of steel elements and their applications. The final chapter presents 54 examples which illustrate the many applications of steel in construction - from simple halls to complex multistorey buildings. These examples were selected because of their innovative use of steel, demonstrating its great potential for minimising the materials and montage necessary. For ease of comparison all the plans have been drawn to the same scale. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography and a listing of the relevant norms and standards.

Abstract

Smart materials are architectural innovations that merge research, development, and function. With their reversible characteristics and amazing ability to respond to stimuli such as light and temperature, they have become a popular resource for architects. One of the most fascinating developments is the advent of Phase Change Materials. These materials make it possible, for example, to develop self-acting, kinetic facades and wallpaper that changes its color and pattern based on temperature, light, or touch. Smart Materials presents the development of these materials and describes their use in the contexts of architecture, design, and art. It offers a systematic overview with a detailed discussion of properties, technologies, products, and projects.
