Mānoa Professor Amarjit Singh co-edited Modern Methods and Advances in Structural Engineering and Construction. The book, released in June 2011, has been published by Research Publishing Services, Singapore.

The world is at the threshold of emerging technologies, where new systems in construction, materials and civil and architectural design are poised to make the world better from a structural and construction perspective. Exciting developments, that are too many to name individually, take place yearly, affecting design considerations and construction practices.

This edited book brings together modern methods and advances in structural engineering and construction, fulfilling the mission of ISEC Conferences, which is to enhance communication and understanding between structural and construction engineers for successful design and construction of engineering projects. The articles in this book are those accepted for publication and presentation at the 6th International Structural Engineering and Construction Conference in Zurich.

The topics covered in this book, range from legal affairs and contracting, to innovations and risk analysis in infrastructure projects, analysis and design of structural systems, materials, architecture and construction.

The articles are a lasting testimony to the excellent research being undertaken around the world and provide a platform for the exchange of ideas, research efforts and networking in the structural engineering and construction communities.

Modern Methods and Advances in Structural Engineering and Construction is available from the publisher’s website.
