Safety and Durability of Buildings and Structures
Collection of selected, peer reviewed papers from the International Conference on Building Safety and Secure 2015, August 10-12, 2015, Prague, Czech Republic.
The book covers a wide range of topics: Durability of Composites, Prospective Materials, Construction Industry, Concrete Damage Evolution, Construction Ecological Requirements
Keywords: Risk Analysis and Risk Management, Safety Material Engineering, Integrated Safety Design Process, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Building Sustainabillity
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Contributors from the many disciplines involved discuss ideas and case studies involving building safety and protecting buildings against natural, criminal, terrorist, and accidental hazards. The 15 papers consider such aspects as the structural performance of ancient composite floors made with wrought iron joists and masonry vaults, the computer processing of safety and health plans in building construction, the three-dimensional analysis of a bridge's changing structural system as an easy design tool, applying cement-based materials to protect critical infrastructure, and the non-destructive examination of cement-based materials before and after explosion tests.
