Sustainable Construction Materials : Sewage Sludge Ash (Hardcover) (Ravindra K. Dhir)
about this item
This book, as part of a series of five, aims to promote the use of sustainable construction materials. It is different to the norm and its uniqueness lies in developing a data matrix sourced from 525 publications, contributed by 1107 authors from 442 institutions in 48 countries from 1970 to 2016, on the subject of sewage sludge ash as a construction material, and systematically analysing, evaluating and modelling this information for use in cement, concrete, ceramics, geotechnics and road pavement applications. Related environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. The work establishes what is already known and can be used. It would also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources, which can instead be directed towards new research to progress the use of sustainable construction materials. The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner. As an excellent reference source, the book is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, developers, and certifying and regulatory authorities, seeking to promote sustainability within the construction sector.
