Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book discusses the role of physical tests in the development of design methods for new structural materials, new construction techniques and new forms of construction. It also demonstrates the practical application of these new methods in the construction of buildings, structures and civil engineering works. It provides a fascinating view of some of the most innovative and exciting approaches being used in a wide range of buildings and structures under the following main topics: general principles and philosophy; timber; new structural materials; new concrete techniques and masonry structures; steel/concrete composite structures; steel structures; and new construction techniques. Building the Future presents the proceedings of the international seminar held by the Institution of Structural Engineers, Informal Study Group 'Model Analysis as a Design Tool' and the Building Research Establishment in Brighton in April 1993, and it brings together contributions from 20 countries.
