2008 July 23rd: Date of publication of the Springer book "Acoustic Emission Testing - Basics for research - Applications in Civil Engineering".
Acoustic Emission (AE) techniques have been studied in civil engineering for more than two decades. The techniques are recently going to be applied to practical applications and to be standardized in the codes. This is because the increase of aging structures and disastrous damages due to recent earthquakes urgently demand for maintenance and retrofit of civil structures in service for example. It results in the need for the development of advanced and effective inspection techniques. Thus, AE techniques draw a great attention to diagnostic applications and in material testing. The book covers all levels from the description of AE basics for AE beginners (level of a student) to sophisticated AE algorithms and applications.

2007 July 23-24: "Advances in Construction Materials" - Symposium in honor of Hans W. Reinhardt
The Symposium on Advances in Construction Materials 2007 will give an overview about the state of the art in construction materials. It brings together scientists from all over the world to share ideas for further developments and solutions for in situ applications. This year the conference is dedicated to the work of an exceptional scientist in this field.
2007 April 24: Announcement of the Springer book "Advances in Construction Materials 2007".
The book is a compilation of recent research results on building construction materials. The construction industry consumes extreme volumes of material, and the growing demand for quality and safety require continuous improvement of materials and material compositions. A deep understanding of material behavior is essential to enable efficient construction: light-weight or heavily burdened structures ask for the development of innovative composites or new material compositions.
Civil Engineers and Material Scientists from all over the world present their ideas for further material developments, the testing of structures and solutions for in situ applications. Many of the innovations, composites and the design of existing material mixes, especially for concrete, are discussed. These include high-strength and high-performance concrete (HPC), self-compacting concrete (SCC), shotcrete, and textile or fiber reinforced concrete (FRC).
Moreover, the enhancement of material variations and the improvement of their properties are observed for most construction materials (e.g. wood, masonry, steel, polymers).
This book gives a good overview about the state-of-the-art in construction material science. Some of the world’s leading experts have contributed in honor of Professor Dr.-Ing. Hans W. Reinhardt. The book starts with a review about his scientific achievements up to his recent retirement. Some contributions are presented at the conference “Advances in Construction Materials” (ACM2007) in July 2007 in Stuttgart.
