About the book

Construction is a large segment of the global economy. Some statistics show that the global construction industry is predicted to grow from $7.2 trillion to over $12 trillion in less than a decade. However, productivity, safety and quality of buildings and infrastructure are challenging. This can be addressed by the adoption of advanced construction technology which may lead to appropriate design, project delivery, suitable procurement monitoring, high quality control and careful commissioning. Advanced technologies include 3D printing, composite materials, computer vision, modular construction, substructure works and temporary structures. Structural design will also closely affect construction costs, quality and safety. The book aims to publish current practice or recent advances in both building construction and structures including infrastructures such as bridges, tunnels and offshore platforms. The focus of chapters can be construction systems and operations; structural use of emerging materials including composite; behavioral analysis of structural systems; structures under extreme conditions such as strong winds, earthquakes, fires and blasts; performance-based structural engineering; Energy modeling; life-cycle structural engineering; structural health monitoring; and sustainability in construction and structure; green building.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
