While construction activities improve the quality of human live, they also have significant impact on the environment. The production of construction materials requires energy and generates greenhouse gases. The reduction of carbon footprint for construction materials can start at the production phase, where energy efficient processes can be developed and waste or recycled materials can be employed. However, it is just as important to increase the life of built facilities, so the frequency of construction activities can be reduced. Experience over the last few decades has shown that poor material durability is often the cause of pre-mature deterioration of structures, resulting in the need for large scale repair and even reconstruction. Better understanding of the loading and environmental effects on material deformation and failure is required for more durable materials to be designed. Sensing and non-destructive techniques are useful as they enable better quality control and early identification of damages. With the proper repair/strengthening materials and methods, structure life can be extended with little cost and low carbon emission. When structures are built to resist extreme loading (e.g., earthquake, hurricane), the innovative use of high performance materials can effectively control damage and prevent collapse. For buildings, carbon footprint will also be greatly reduced if indoor/outdoor heat exchange is decreased. Material with improved thermal insulation, which is an example of functional materials, can be very useful.

The International RILEM Conference on Advances in Construction Materials Through Science and Engineering took place in Hong Kong, China, on 5-7 September 2011.

The 4 keynote lectures and the 138 papers presented at the conference are included in the present proceedings, which can hopefully serve as a useful reference for researchers and engineers interested in the recent advancements in construction materials.
