An international journal dedicated to the investigation and innovative use of materials in construction and repair
Construction and Building Materials provides an international forum for the dissemination of research and development in the field of constructionand building materials and their application in new works and repair practice. The journal publishes a wide range of research and application papers which describe laboratory and numerical investigations or report on full scale projects.
Construction and Building Materials also publishes detailed case studies and review articles, as well as short communications and discussions.
The materials and technology covered include: cement, concrete reinforcement, bricks and mortars, additives, corrosion technology, ceramics, timber, steel, polymers, glass fibres, recycled materials and by-products, sealants, adhesives.
The scope of Construction and Building Materials includes, but is not restricted to, new works and repair and maintenance of the following:bridges, high-rise buildings, dams, civil engineering structures,silos, highway pavements, tunnels, water containment structures,sewers, roofing, housing, coastal defences.
At a time when the pressure is on all engineers, architects and contractors to optimise use of new materials and up-to-date technologies,Construction and Building Materials provides essential information that will help improve efficiency, productivity and competitiveness in world markets. It is therefore vital reading for all professionals and academics involved with research into, or specification of, building materials.
Author duties: Acceptance of a manuscript for publication in the journal carries with it an understanding that the author, when requested, will fulfil an obligation to contribute their expertise to the review of others' manuscripts.
Energy and Buildings
An international journal devoted to investigations of energy use and efficiency in buildings
Energy and Buildings is an international journal publishing articles with explicit links to energy use in buildings. The aim is to present new research results, and new proven practice aimed at reducing the energy needs of a building and improving indoor environment quality.
Topics covered include:
Energy demands and consumption in existing and future buildings - prediction and validation
Indoor environment quality, including health and thermal comfort vis-à-vis energy
Natural, mechanical and mixed ventilation
Air distribution in buildings
