Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (p. 263-265) and index.
Summary, etc.: Concrete's multifaceted nature has made it very popular today with planners and builders. Besides the enormous potential inherent in its load-bearing capacity, the material offers a diversity of properties and surface characteristics. This publication focuses not just on the design and construction of concrete load-bearing structures, but also especially on concretes material characteristics and thus on the haptic and sensual side of this material. The Modern Concrete Construction Manual provides planners with expert information on concrete as a construction material, ranging from manufacturing to material characteristics, to the design of concrete load-bearing structures, including details on current digital design and production process options. Designed as a standard reference work, the publication offers comprehensive and detailed insights into a range of topics, including cost-effectiveness, energy and sustainability, renovation, design and interior design. An extensive index of successful projects, with a selection of real-life examples, provides inspiration, while inviting readers to make modern use of this classic construction material.
