Description

New Trends in Eco-efficient and Recycled Concrete describes different recycled materials that have been used in eco-efficient concrete, reviewing previous publications to identify the most effective recycled materials to be applied in concrete manufacture. New trends on eco-efficient concrete are presented, filling a gap in the market. Sections cover various recycled materials applied in concrete production, present the latest on the lifecycle analysis of recycled aggregate concrete, detail new trends in recycled aggregate concrete research, and finally, present updates on upscaling the use of recycled aggregate concrete and structural reliability.

Key Features

  • Focuses on new trends in recycled aggregate concrete and its applications (rather than the more subjective ‘sustainability’ aspects)
  • Contains very important contributions from researchers in eco-efficient concrete, including Chi Sun Poon, Jorge de Brito, Valeria Corinaldesi, Francisco Agrela, etc.
  • Presents a ‘one stop’ reference for a graduate course on sustainable construction

Readership

Civil and structural engineers, materials scientists, architects and structural designers, environmental engineers
