New Materials in Civil Engineering provides engineers and scientists with the tools and methods needed to meet the challenge of designing and constructing more resilient and sustainable infrastructures. This book is a valuable guide to the properties, selection criteria, products, applications, lifecycle and recyclability of advanced materials. It presents an A-to-Z approach to all types of materials, highlighting their key performance properties, principal characteristics and applications. Traditional materials covered include concrete, soil, steel, timber, fly ash, geosynthetic, fiber-reinforced concrete, smart materials, carbon fiber and reinforced polymers. In addition, the book covers nanotechnology and biotechnology in the development of new materials.
- Covers a variety of materials, including fly ash, geosynthetic, fiber-reinforced concrete, smart materials, carbon fiber reinforced polymer and waste materials
- Provides a “one-stop” resource of information for the latest materials and practical applications
- Includes a variety of different use case studies

Professor Pijush Samui is currently an Associate Professor at National Institute of Technology, Patna, India. He is an established researcher in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for solving different problems in engineering. He developed a new method for prediction of response of soil during an earthquake. He has given charts for prediction of response of soil during an earthquake and developed equations for prediction of lateral spreading of soil due to earthquake. He developed equations for determination of seismic liquefaction potential of soil based on strain energy and prediction of seismic attenuation. He developed efficient models for prediction of magnitude of reservoir induced earthquake. He has developed models for determination of medical waste generation in hospitals with equations used for practical purpose. The developed models can be used for clean India project. He determined frequency effects on liquefaction by using Shake Table. He has applied AI techniques for determination of bearing capacity and settlement of foundation and equations for determination of bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundation. He also developed equations for determination of compression index and angle of shearing resistance of soil. he developed equations for prediction of uplift capacity of suction caisson. He also developed equations for determination of fracture parameters of concrete. His active research activity is evident from his extensive citation of publications in google scholar (total frequency of 1280) with H-Index of 22. Dr Samui has published journal papers, books/book chapters and peer reviewed conference papers that involved co-authors from Australia, India, Korea and several other nations. He is also holding the position of Visiting Professor at Far East Federal University (Russia).
