Until recently, the development of building materials has focused on producing cheaper and more durable construction materials. Now more attention is given to the environmental issues. Sustainability of Construction Materials brings together a wealth of recent research on the subject. It provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the sustainability of these materials: aggregates, wood, bamboo, vegetable fibers, masonry, cement, concrete and cement replacement materials, metals and alloys, glass, and engineered wood products. Final chapters cover the use of recycled tire rubber in civil engineering works, the durability of sustainable materials, and nanotechnology in sustainable construction.
