Chemistry - Composite Materials
Construction refers to the act of building structures and infrastructure. It is primarily associated with the planning, designing and financing of the construction projects. Construction is applied in the three major sectors – buildings, infrastructure and industry. Building construction involves residential and non-residential institutions. Infrastructure includes dams, bridges, highways, etc. Industrial sector involves refineries, mills and manufacturing plants. Some of the steps that fall under the domain of construction of buildings are developing floor plans, excavating the foundation and building the main load bearing structure. Most of the topics introduced in this book cover new techniques and the applications of advanced materials for building construction. It is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide an in-depth knowledge about the theory and practice of the subject. A number of latest researches have been included to keep the readers up-to-date with the global concepts in this area of study.
