Handbook of Research on Methods and Tools for Assessing Cultural Landscape Adaptation Book Description:

In a globalizing and expanding world, the need for research centered on analysis, representation, and management of landscape components has become critical. By providing development strategies that promote resilient relations, this book promotes more sustainable and cultural approaches for territorial construction. The Handbook of Research on Methods and Tools for Assessing Cultural Landscape Adaptation provides emerging research on the cultural relationships between a community and the ecological system in which they live. This book highlights important topics such as adaptive strategies, ecosystem services, and operative methods that explore the expanding aspects of territorial transformation in response to human activities. This publication is an important resource for academicians, graduate students, engineers, and researchers seeking a comprehensive collection of research focused on the social and ecological components in territory development.

Reinforced concrete structures are one of the major structural types and must adhere to design regulation codes. It is ideal to find the best design (section dimension, material type, and amount of reinforcement) with the minimum cost providing the design constraints (design formulation considering loading of structure).
