Advanced Materials and Techniques for Reinforced Concrete Structures
Nowadays, there is a race among investors for constructing high-rise buildings due to high proἀts from the real estate business worldwide. Therefore, the major challenge for structural engineers is how to achieve the goal for the investors and the architects as well.
The aim of this book is to present the most advanced materials and construc-tion techniques used in the reinforced concrete structure industry. Because advanced materials are growing parallel to the development of new structure systems, the advantages and disadvantages of the different structure systems are very important from durability, reliability, and construction points of view.This book is intended to serve as a guide to junior and senior engineers who work in design, construction, and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures to assist them in choosing the most reasonable structure system, materials, method of con-struction, and maintenance plan.
