Description

Innovations in Structural Engineering and Construction focuses on the latest developments in innovative techniques and solutions in structural engineering and construction. The book includes contributions on specific types of materials and structures, such as reinforced concrete structures, steel structures, bridges, high-rise buildings and precast systems. Structures are also considered in the context of the environment, with contributions on geotechnical engineering, earthquake engineering, and fire engineering. The area of construction includes papers on construction planning and project management, contracting and claims, cost and quality control, and knowledge management. Other papers consider damage assessment, hazard and risk management, reliability analysis, optimal design, and engineering education and ethics. The collection will be of interest to structural and construction engineers, architects and those involved in the building and construction industry. It will also appeal to academics, researchers and students. The book contains 242 papers presented at the 4th International Structural Engineering and Construction Conference (ISEC-4) in Melbourne, September, 2007.
