Description

This book is the fourth, in the series of five, on sustainable construction materials and like the previous three, it is also different to the norm. Its uniqueness lies in using the newly developed, Analytical Systemisation Method, in building the data-matrix sourced from 751 publications, contributed by 1402 authors from 513 institutions in 51 countries, from 1970 to 2017, on the subject of processed waste glass (glass cullet) as a construction material, and systematically analysing, evaluating and modelling this information for use of glass cullet as cement, aggregate or filler in concrete, ceramics, geotechnics and road pavement applications. Environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. The work establishes what is already known and can be used to further progress the use of sustainable construction materials. It can also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources. The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner and is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, and government bodies dealing with construction works.

Key Features

  • Provides an extensive source of valuable database information, supported by an exhaustive list of globally-based published literature over the last 40-50 years
  • Offer an analysis, evaluation, repackaging and modeling of existing knowledge on sustainable construction practices
  • Provides a wealth of knowledge for use in many sectors relating to the construction profession

Readership

For global readership (including major new economies such China, India, Brazil) the emerging higher education boom and the desire to develop research within the areas of sustainable construction as a major priority both in the developed and developing countries. All libraries worldwide

About the Authors

Ravindra K. Dhir OBE Author

Ravindra Kumar Dhir OBE is an honorary professor of concrete engineering, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom; adjunct professor at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and emeritus professor of concrete technology, University of Dundee, United Kingdom, where he held the position of founding director of the Concrete Technology Unit (1988-2008) and developed it into an internationally acknowledged Centre of Excellence. His approach to research is visionary and creative, and by working closely with industry, he ensured a meaningful dissemination of his research into practice. He won many awards and honours,including the Order of the British Empire for services to concrete technology from the Queen (1998), Secretary of State for Trade and Industry for innovative partnership with

industry (1989 and 1990 consecutively) and honorary fellowships from the Institute of Concrete Technology, United Kingdom; Indian Concrete Institute. He served on numerous technical committees, including as president of the Concrete Society (2009-2010) and on the editorial board of the Magazine of Concrete Research.

Gurmel S. Ghataora Author

Dr Gurmel S. Ghataora, Senior lecturer, University of Birmingham, UK. Over 40 years’ experience in the geotechnical engineering industry and academia. He has been at the University for over 25 years, where in addition to his teaching, he is the Head of Postgraduate Admissions for all taught programmes in Civil Engineering. He has supervised over 50 research students and authored over 180 articles. His interests include geotechnics of earth roads and railways, and sustainable construction materials. Amongst his many inventions are zero-compaction trench backfill made from as-dug materials, fibre reinforcement of clayey soils, improving the stiffness of railway tracks without removing the track, a novel railway drainage system and remediating acidity in colliery spoil using waste materials. Current studies include the durability of concrete made with recycled concrete aggregate and municipal incinerated bottom ash. He is a member of the Institute of the IOM3 and sits on two TRB committees.
