Lastly, a number of examples of sustainable metal buildings and up to date case research present additional steering to the practitioner. This e-book wouldn’t have been potential with out the quite a few contributions of authors from throughout Europe with widespread backgrounds equivalent to architectural or structural engineering apply, sustainability, metal manufacturing, metal development, academia or numerous sorts of associations.
Additional thanks go to my coeditors Markus Kuhnhenne, Mark Lawson and Milan Veljkovic for the fruitful discussions and good cooperation in getting ready this e-book. I thank notably Raban Siebers, who has finished many of the precise work of bringing collectively all of the totally different authors and contributions.
