Construction Services on the Web
Abstract:The World Wide Web is an increasingly important source of information as well as a communications platform for civil engineers and other construction practitioners. The paper introduces the Web and addresses the development of construction-related Web services. Some sample Web sites supporting virtual research teams, interest groups, construction information systems and knowledge dissemination are presented. The impact of Web-based information technology on construction practice is also considered.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
