Sustainable Construction and Building Materials
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This book presents select proceedings of the International Conference on Sustainable Construction and Building Materials ICSCBM , and examines a range of durable, energy-efficient, and next-generation construction and building materials produced from industrial wastes and byproducts. The topics covered include alternative, eco-friendly construction and building materials, next-generation concretes, energy efficiency in construction, and sustainability in construction project management. The book also discusses various properties and performance attributes of modern-age concretes including their durability, workability, and carbon footprint. As such, it offers a valuable reference for beginners, researchers, and professionals interested in sustainable construction and allied fields.
When people hear buzz about the green building movement, they often think of low-flow showers and waterless urinals; alternative power sources such as solar or wind; and green power credits. Yes, the green building movement is about all of these things, but also so much more. Minimizing the environmental impacts of land development also includes protecting natural systems, reducing impervious footprints, and keeping stormwater in check. In the green building movement, our role as civil engineers is significant and multifaceted. It requires us to integrate sustainability goals into every step of design, from site layout and materials selection to stormwater management and erosion control.

This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building. Generally, green homes are healthier, more comfortable, more durable, and more energy efficient and have a much smaller environmental footprint than conventional homes. Civil engineers are often responsible for specifying, designing and manufacturing the materials with which they build their structures. Studies in construction materials are intended to make structural, transportation and foundation engineers aware of the fundamental properties of the materials they use.
