Summary : Using recycled materials in mortars helps both reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, and the use of natural resources in mortars. Industry, however, has been slow to trust and adopt waste products as raw materials for use in mortars. Eco-Efficient Rendering Mortars focuses on the incorporation of waste materials into cement-based renders, discussing the origins, treatment processes, and properties of relevant wastes. It aims to dispel mistrust through demonstrating the technical feasibility and environmental benefits of eco-efficient rendering mortars. The book considers the characteristics of different waste products, such as aggregates, fillers, binders and additions. The functional requirements of renders are discussed, alongside the impact of wastes on these requirements. Finally, the title considers the lifecycle of and durability of modified mortars. This book offers robust support for, and clear guidance on the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders. Presents evidence supporting the use of wastes as a substitute for natural aggregates and binders Characterizes wastes and considers how best to incorporate different kinds of waste into renders Gives detail on the technical efficiency and environmental impact of different waste materials on mortars Analyses the impact of wastes on render performance in terms of fresh state, mechanical, water, and durability Considers the lifecycle assessment and durability of modified mortars

Summary : This guidance is for anyone who wishes to improve energy efficiency in an historic building. There are many reasons to do this. Improving energy efficiency will lower carbon emissions and fuel bills and often increase comfort. It also might be necessary to ensure that a building complies with legal requirements. More broadly, improving energy efficiency forms a part of the wider objective to achieve a sustainable environment. It is a widely held view that older buildings are not energy-efficient, and must be radically upgraded in order to improve their performance. In reality, the situation is more complicated, and assumptions about poor performance are not always justified. Even so, the energy and carbon performance of most historic buildings can be improved, which will help them remain viable and useful, now and in the future. But striking the right balance between benefit and harm is not easy. The unintended consequences of getting energy efficiency measures wrong (or doing them badly) include: harm to heritage values and significance, harm to human health and building fabric, and failure to achieve the predicted savings or reductions in environmental impact. Getting the balance right (and avoiding unintended consequences) is best done with a holistic approach that uses an understanding of a building, its context, its significance, and all the factors affecting energy use as the starting point for devising an energy-efficiency strategy. This 'whole building approach' ensures that energy-efficiency measures are suitable, robust, well integrated, properly coordinated and sustainable. In addition, this approach provides an effective framework for communication and understanding between the various parties involved in the process. These include assessors, designers, installers and the people who occupy and manage the building. A logical and systematic process of energy planning underpins the 'whole building approach'. This guidance describes the key stages of the process, illuminating any problems that might occur and providing solutions. It also includes checklists of practical measures that might be considered, along with links to sources of more detailed information about how to install these measures.

Summary : Concrete is now the material of choice for the construction of structures exposed to extreme conditions. However, conventional concrete suffers from a number of inherent deficiencies, such as its low tensile strength. As a result, concrete structures undergo significant shrinkage cracking. Recent studies have explored the use of nanotechnology and nanomaterials for enhancing the performance of cement paste, to solve this problem. Smart Nanoconcretes and Cement-Based Materials explores the fundamental concepts and applications of smart nanoconcretes with self-healing, self-cleaning, photocatalytic, antibacterial, piezoelectrical, heating and conducting properties which are used in the modern structures of high-rise buildings, hydraulic engineering, highways, tunnels, bridges. This book is an important reference source for both materials scientists and civil engineers who are looking to enhance the properties of smart nanomaterials to create stronger, more durable concrete.
