    Resumen del libro

    The book, ADVANCES IN BUILDING ENGINEERING RESEARCH, has been conceived as a result of the efforts of some of the most relevant researchers in the field of building engineering at a national level. The work, well structured and composed of original research, shows through a didactic approach the current lines of work in which the construction sector in Spain is developing. Nowadays, nobody doubts that we are immersed in a process of change and technological innovation that fully affects the industry, and the construction sector is no stranger to it. Advances in technology and its application to everyday life, the excessive consumption of natural resources and the need to apply circular economy strategies, or the development of new sustainable construction materials, are some of the issues addressed in this book. Thus, in line with European guidelines and the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the 2030 Agenda, the European Union has established a roadmap that promotes responsible economic growth. It is for this reason that it is essential to address new ways of conceiving building in our country, and for this reason, it has been essential to have various collaborators from renowned Universities and Research Centres that have wanted to be part of this work. Undoubtedly, all the original research presented here deals with the process of innovation in building and is linked to the common paradigm of sustainability. However, despite the complexity of some of the topics covered in this compendium, the authors have tried to unify the criteria of academic rigour and agile and accessible presentation. For this reason, it is understood that this book is suitable both for doctoral students and researchers, as well as for people interested in popularising science with a basic training. This is perhaps the strong point of this work, which has been polished as a result of the criticisms received from all those colleagues who have been kind enough to read the final document and help to improve it. We would also like to thank all the authors who have responded to our call and have kindly contributed their excellent research to the creation of this book. The works that make up the different Chapters have been selected through a blind peer review process and are the result of the wide-ranging concerns and issues that are of concern to building professionals in the year 2024. Last but not least, we would like to thank the Department of Building Technology and especially its Director, Mr. Carlos Morón Fernández, for giving us the opportunity to carry out this initiative by providing us with the necessary means. We hope, with all our intention, to make known the research work that is being carried out in the field of building, with a firm commitment to technological innovation and sustainable development.
