A Handbook of Sustainable Building Design and Engineering: An Integrated Approach to Energy, Health and Operational Performance

The mixed demanding situations of healthiness, convenience, weather swap and effort defense pass the bounds of conventional construction disciplines. This authoritative assortment, focusing totally on strength and air flow, offers the present and subsequent new release of creating engineering execs with what they should paintings heavily with many disciplines to satisfy those demanding situations.

Loft Conversions, Second Edition

Strain on area and adjustments in making plans legislation suggest that loft conversions are actually on the leading edge within the race to enhance the functionality of Britains growing old housing inventory. when you consider that 1990, roof area conversions have elevated united kingdom housing potential by way of greater than 2 hundred million sq. toes - a residing sector such as a medium-sized urban - with out the lack of a unmarried sq. foot of greenfield land.

Charles E. White, Jr. used to be an architect in Chicago within the first a long time of the twentieth century, and served his apprenticeship within the Oak Park studio of Frank Lloyd Wright in the course of these momentous years while Wright invented what got here to be often called the "Prairie condo.

Job-­site admixture (water reducer) addition may also help reduce the variations in mixing-­water demand due to delivery-­time variations, provided qualified personnel are available to administer it. Automated admixture (water reducer) addition devices can also be considered when available. 5%. 1 extracted from the NRMCA Concrete Technologist Certification Instruction Manual shows the typical reductions in mixing-­water content expected due to the entrained air content. Added air illustrated in the figures is the difference between the target air content in air-­entrained concrete and that present as entrapped air in nonair-­entrained concrete with the same materials.

The goal should be to minimize the water 26 Improving Concrete Quality added to the mixture at this point and to be able to record the quantity of water added to the mixture. It is important to educate the truck mixer operators to minimize the water entering the mixer drum and to record the amount of water added. Automated water-­addition devices installed in truck mixers are also available. These devices introduce recordable quantities of water to the concrete mixture based on calibrated slump meters that measure the mixture consistency.

2 Effect of Mixing Water, Mixing-­Water Demand on Measured Concrete Slump Mixing Water in the Batch Mixing-­Water Demand of the Batch Effect on Measured Concrete Slump of the Batch Higher than target range Lower than target range Within target range in mixing-­water content may also lead to the same, and even a lower, slump, provided the mixing-­water demand increases. Similarly, a decrease in mixing-­water content may also lead to the same, and even higher, slump, provided the mixing-­ water demand decreases.
