Authoritative in its approach, Sustainable Infrastructure Design and Construction provides solid body of knowledge for ensuring or resorting integrity to vital infrastructural systems such as: roads and bridges to unseen water pipes and sewer systems. A valuable guide to sustainable design and construction processes and methods, Sustainable Infrastructure Design and Construction provides a complete reference for those engineers and scientist wishing to conduct sustainability research in all sectors of applied science and engineering.

The book begins with a rudimentary discussion of environmental pollution and energy, followed by their applications for solving problems in construction processes and practices governing: Advanced Building Design, Infrastructure and Transportation, and Water and sewage. Other topics include: Engineering Invisible Roads and Bridges, Smart Building Technology, Building Information Modeling, Energy Modeling, Resilience in Urban and Rural Development, Engineering Invisible Roads and Bridges, Zero Emission Vehicles and Flying Transportation Technology.

Key Features

  • Covers the latest research in the utilization of renewable energy and the implementation in construction and building system design
  • Includes a detailed discussion on combined technology applications of energy, gas, and water has been discussed for realizing a zero-emission building, rural, and urban (ZEBRU) development
  • Covers advanced methods and technologies for constructing sustainable transportation system including of roads, bridges, tunnels, and hardscapes
