Sustainable Design and Build provides a complete reference for engineers and scientists who want to conduct sustainability research. The book begins with a rudimentary discussion of environmental pollution and energy that is followed by their applications for solving problems in construction processes and practices governing advanced building design, infrastructure and transportation, and water and sewage. Other topics include engineering invisible roads and bridges, smart building technology, building information modeling, energy modeling, resilience in urban and rural development, engineering invisible roads and bridges, zero emission vehicles and flying transportation technology.
This book presents a valuable guide to sustainable design and construction processes and methods.
- Covers the latest research in the utilization of renewable energy and the implementation in construction and building system design
- Includes a detailed discussion on combined technology applications of energy, gas and water
- Covers advanced methods and technologies for constructing sustainable transportation systems, including roads, bridges, tunnels and hardscapes
