About these proceedings


This book presents select proceedings of the International Conference on Sustainable Construction and Building Materials (ICSCBM 2018), and examines a range of durable, energy-efficient, and next-generation construction and building materials produced from industrial wastes and byproducts. The topics covered include alternative, eco-friendly construction and building materials, next-generation concretes, energy efficiency in construction, and sustainability in construction project management. The book also discusses various properties and performance attributes of modern-age concretes including their durability, workability, and carbon footprint. As such, it offers a valuable reference for beginners, researchers, and professionals interested in sustainable construction and allied fields.

About the editors

Dr. Bibhuti Bhusan Das is currently an Associate Professor at the National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK), Surathkal. Before joining the NITK, he served as center head for the National Institute of Construction Management and Research, Goa and Indore Campus. He has worked as a postdoctoral research associate and adjunct faculty member at the Department of Civil Engineering at Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan. His research focuses on the sustainability of construction and building materials, which include the microstructure characterization of materials, non-destructive testing of concrete structures, corrosion of reinforcement and durability studies on concrete, and sustainability in construction project management. Dr. Das is an associate member of the American Concrete Institute and part of the International Faculty Network Committee launched by the ACI Education Foundation in 2009. He also serves on the editorial board or as a reviewer for a number of national and international journals. 

Dr. Narayanan Neithalath obtained his PhD from Purdue University in 2004, specializing in civil engineering materials. His research focuses on the development and characterization of sustainable infrastructural materials, with an emphasis on a “materials by design” approach using novel tools of material characterization, at different length scales, which are based on electron and x-ray imaging, electrical impedance, NMR, and indentation. He has published 100 papers in international journals, along with several conference proceedings, and has been a keynote speaker at various conferences. Dr. Neithalath is a recipient of several awards for novel material design, and is the editor of the ASCE Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering. Currently, he is serving as a Professor at the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, Arizona State University.
