Description

The concept of sustainability aims to satisfy present day needs for housing, working environments and infrastructure without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs in times to come. In the world of construction, buildings have the capacity to make a major contribution to a more sustainable future for our planet. Sustainable buildings have become vital cornerstones for securing long-term environmental, economic and social viability.

Sustainable construction involves issues such as the design and management of buildings; materials performance; construction technology and processes; energy and resource efficiency in building, operation and maintenance; robust products and technologies; long-term monitoring; occupational health and safety and working conditions and also the dissemination of knowledge in related academic, technical and social contexts.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on the topic: Sustainable Building Materials and Technologies which includes the results of both industrial and academic research on development of advanced building materials for passive and zero-energy buildings and materials for renovation, innovative key building materials and the use of alternative raw materials such as construction and demolition waste, fly ash and another industrial inorganic and organic waste in building materials production. Another two topics focus on the analysis of impact of building products and materials during their life in terms of environmental specifications and on the evaluation of indoor environment in terms of release of pollutants from materials providing guidelines for materials selection in the eco-design of new buildings and rehabilitation of existing buildings.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Chemistry and fundamental properties of building materials and their components
  • Utilization of alternative raw materials
  • Mechanical and corrosion behavior of building materials
  • Advanced building materials, processing and technologies
  • Green concrete
  • Innovative integrated solutions to key building materials
  • Energy efficient building materials
  • Structural design and modelling
  • Life cycle analysis of building materials
  • Indoor air quality assessment
  • Technologies and materials for improved indoor air quality
