Sustainable construction technologies are not new, but construction practitioners are still not actively incorporating them into their construction projects. One of the major burdens is high investment cost. Life cycle assessment of implementing sustainable construction technologies can help construction practitioners understand the life time perspective of the implementation. In Sustainable Construction Technologies: Life-Cycle Assessment, the Authors provide practitioners with a tool to support their decision of selecting technologies that may eventually have a higher initial cost but when analyzed through the Life Cycle bring clear financial advantage. In the first chapter the Authors pro...
The book examines several aspects of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) employing linear diversity techniques such as inter-carrier interference, bit error rate, peak to average power and inter-block interference. It should be a useful reference for readers interested in modern wireless communication systems.
