Sustainable Construction Materials : Glass Cullet Hardback
by Ravindra K., OBE (Professor of Concrete Engineering, University of Birmingham, UK) Dhir, Jorge de (Full Professor of Civil Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture Brito, Gurmel S.

Part of the Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering series
This book is the fourth, in the series of five, on sustainable construction materials and like the previous three, it is also different to the norm.
Its uniqueness lies in using the newly developed, Analytical Systemisation Method, in building the data-matrix sourced from 751 publications, contributed by 1402 authors from 513 institutions in 51 countries, from 1970 to 2017, on the subject of processed waste glass (glass cullet) as a construction material, and systematically analysing, evaluating and modelling this information for use of glass cullet as cement, aggregate or filler in concrete, ceramics, geotechnics and road pavement applications.
Environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed.
The work establishes what is already known and can be used to further progress the use of sustainable construction materials.
It can also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources.
The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner and is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, and government bodies dealing with construction works.
