Materials, technologies and practice in historic heritage structures by Maria Boştenaru Dan( Book )
19 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
One distinct feature of human society since the dawn of civilization is the systematic use of inorganic building materials, such as natural stone, unburnt and burnt soil, adobe and brick, inorganic binders like lime and cement, and reinforced concrete. Our heritage has cultural, architectural and technological value and preserving such structures is a key issue today. Planners and conservation scientists need detailed site surveys and analyses to create a database that will serve to guide subsequent actions. One factor in this knowledge base is an understanding of how historic materials were prepared and the crucial properties that influence their long-term behaviour. Any assessment of the way such materials perform must crucially be based on an understanding of the methods used for their analysis. The editors here add to the knowledge base treating the materials used in historic structures, their properties, technology of use and conservation, and their performance in a changing environment. The book draws together 18 chapters dealing with the inorganic materials used in historic structures, such as adobe, brick, stone, mortars, concrete and plasters. The approach is complex, covering material characterisation as well as several case studies of historic structures from Europe, including Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Slovenia and Spain, and the My Sõn Temples in Vietnam. An equally important component of the book covers the analysis of materials, together with a treatment of sustainable development, such as the protection of monuments from earthquakes and climate change. The authors are all leading international experts, drawn from a variety of backgrounds: architecture, civil engineering, conservation science, geology and material science, with close links to professional organisations such as ICOMOS or universities and research centres throughout Europe. Audience: This book will be of interest to geologists, engineers, restorers, consulting engineers, designers and other professionals dealing with cultural heritage and sustainable development. Also graduate students in applied geo-science (mineralogy, geochemistry, petrology), architecture and civil engineering will find interesting information in this book
Earthquake hazard impact and urban planning by Maria Boştenaru Dan( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
"The classical field dealing with earthquakes is called 'earthquake engineering' and considered to be a branch of structural engineering. In projects dealing with strategies for earthquake risk mitigation, urban planning approaches are often neglected. Today interventions are needed on a city, rather than a building, scale. This work deals with the impact of earthquakes, including also a broader view on multihazards in urban areas. Uniquely among other works in the field, particular importance is given to urban planning issues, in conservation of heritage and emergency management. Multicriteria decision making and broad participation of those affected by disasters are included."--
Planning and designing sustainable and resilient landscapes by Cerasella Crăciun( Book )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
This book deals with planning issues in landscape architecture, which start at the evaluation of the existing fabric of society, its history and memory, approached and conserved through photography, film and scenographic installations, a way in which the archetypes can be investigated, be it industrial derelict sites or already green spaces and cultural landscapes. It provides approaches to intervention, through rehabilitation and upgrade, eventually in participative manner. To such evaluation and promotion a couple of disciplines can contribute, such as history of art, geography and communication science, and of course (landscape) architecture. The field of landscape architecture reunites points of view from such different disciplines with a view to an active approach, a contemporary intervention or conservation. The book presents case studies from several European countries (Romania, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal), mostly for large landscape in the outskirts of the cities and in the parks
Interwar architecture with reinforced concrete structure exposed to multihazard in European context : intervention in the Romanian and Italian context by Maria Boştenaru Dan( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
Von der [den] Partizipationsmodellen der 70er Jahre zu Kommunikationsformen Ende des XX.ten Jahrhunderts in Architektur und Städtebau by Maria Boştenaru Dan( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Space and time visualisation ( Book )
6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
This book explores expertise relevant for working groups of NeDiMAH, a European Science Foundation (ESF) funded Research Networking Programme. It examines mapping methods, procedures, tools, criticism, awareness, challenges and solutions around the concepts of “Space and Time” and “Information Visualization”. The chapters explore digital methods in the representation of natural disasters, industrial design, cultural, and the history of architecture. The conclusions link to related research and present suggestions for further work including representing landscape not just as another 3D model but as historic evolution with specialised tools
