While the word "automation" may conjure images of robots taking over jobs, the reality is much more nuanced. In construction, for instance, automation is less likely to diminish employment opportunities than it is to increase productivity. Indeed, automation alongside the global need for new and updated infrastructure and better and more affordable housing can help shape the direction of the construction industry. The key will be anticipating and preparing for the shift, in part by developing new skills in the current and future workforce. This book presents all aspects of automation in construction pertaining to the use of information technologies in design, engineering, construction technologies, and maintenance and management of constructed facilities. The broad scope encompasses all stages of the construction life cycle from initial planning and design, through the construction of the facility, its operation, and maintenance, to the eventual dismantling and recycling of buildings and engineering structures.

Features:






Examines Building Information Management systems, allowing on-site execution of construction more efficient, and for project teams to eliminate mistakes and better coordinate the workforce



Presents the latest information on the automation of modular construction, production in factories, including 3-D printing of components such as facades, or even load-bearing and essential components

Dr. Ehsan Noroozinejad Farsangi is currently a senior researcher at UBC Smart Structures, Canada. Concurrently, he is a tenured faculty member at the Graduate University of Advanced Technology, Iran. He is also an adjunct associate professor at Southeast University, China. Dr. Noroozinejad is the director of the Resilient Structures Research Group consisting of tens of top-ranked international researchers. Besides, he is the founder and chief editor of the International Journal of Earthquake and Impact Engineering, the associate editor of the ASCE Practice Periodical on Structural Design and Construction, the associate editor of the IET Journal of Engineering, the associate editor of Frontiers in Built Environment: Earthquake Engineering Section, the editor of the Journal of Reliability Engineering and Resilience, and the engineering editor of ASCE Natural Hazards Review. He has published over 120 high-impact journal papers in indexed journals and five books with reputed publishers in his field of expertise. His main research interests include smart structures, resilience-based design, reliability analysis, artificial intelligence, construction robotics, intelligent infrastructure, and digital twins in construction. Dr. Noroozinejad is also the recipient of many national and international awards, including the prestigious Associate Editor Award in 2022 by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), because of his consistent and exemplary service to enhance ASCE's publication activities. Dr. Mohammad Noori is a professor of mechanical engineering at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, a fellow and life member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and a recipient of the Japan Society for Promotion of Science Fellowship. Noori's work in modeling the complex hysteretic behavior of structural systems, including pinching phenomenon, cited in the literature as the Bouc-Wen-Baber-Noori model, is an original contribution that has been widely utilized in nonlinear random vibrations for seismic response analysis of concrete structures and has been incorporated in Open Sees seismic analysis program. His work in non-zero mean, non-Gaussian response analysis, and the first passage of hysteretic systems are also original contributions. Over the past 25 years, he has also carried out extensive work in seismic isolation of secondary systems, and the application of artificial intelligence methods for structural health monitoring, which have been widely cited. He has authored over 300 refereed papers, including over 150 journal articles, 12 scientific books, and has edited 25 technical and special journals and volumes. Noori has supervised over 100 graduate students and post-doc scholars and has presented over 100 keynotes, plenaries, and invited talks. He is the founding executive editor of an international journal and has served on the editorial boards of over ten other journals and as a member of numerous scientific and advisory boards. He has been a Distinguished Visiting Professor at several highly ranked global universities and directed the Sensors Program at the National Science Foundation in 2014. He has been a founding director or co-founder of three industry-university research centers and held chair professorships at two major universities. He served as the dean of engineering at Cal Poly for five years, served as the chair of the National Committee of Mechanical Engineering Department heads, and was one of seven cofounders of the National Institute of Aerospace, in partnership with NASA Langley Research Center. Noori also serves as the chief technical advisor for several scientific organizations and industries. Dr. Tony T.Y. Yang is a professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada. He is a world-renowned researcher in structural and earthquake engineering, with over 200 high-impact refereed papers, books, and reports with over 2,300 citations. He has developed numerous novel technologies that hav<
