There has been considerable increase in the knowledge concernÂ ing tear secretion, the ocular surface, and pathophysiologic conÂ ditions leading to the dry eye. Much of this new knowledge is not widely appreciated. Although there have been proceedings of symposia published, there is no currently available book of sufÂ ficient scope, yet reasonable length, which ties together aspects of this newly acquired knowledge. This textbook is designed to give the ophthalmic practitioner a comprehensive, yet concise, guideÂ line concerning the diagnosis and treatment of the dry eye. We have been able to bring together leading researchers to accomÂ plish the same. We wish to express our special thanks to the company Dr. Mann Pharma of Berlin without whose generous sponsorship we could not have completed our task. The sponsorÂ ship, in bringing together the authors in planning, preparation, and realization of this text, is gratefully acknowledged. Washington/Ulm, March 1992 M. A. Lemp R.

Concrete is at something of a crossroads: there are many opportunities and some threats. For those opportunities to change into beneficial practice, engineers, material scientists, architects manufacturers and suppliers must focus on the changes that are required to champion concrete and maintain its dominance within the global construction industry. The Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) of the University of Dundee organised this Congress to address these changes, under the theme Global Construction: Ultimate Concrete Opportunities, 5-7 July 2005. The three-day International Congress consisted of ten Events. "Use of Foamed Concrete in Construction" forms the Proceedings of Event 6 and deals with issues such as materials, properties and production characteristics, specification for foamed concrete, applications and case studies.About the Authors: Professor Ravindra K Dhir is founding Director of the Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) at the University of Dundee. A renowned practitioner in the field of concrete technology, he is a member of numerous national and international technical committees and has published extensively on many aspects of concrete technology, cement science, durability and construction methods. Dr Moray D Newlands is CPD/Consultancy Manager in the Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) at the University of Dundee. He is involved in transferring technology to the concrete construction industry at a national and international level and his research interests include carbonation of concrete, plastic and autogenous shrinkage of cementitious systems and engineering properties of blended cement concretes.Dr A McCarthy is a Research / Teaching Fellow in the Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) at the University of Dundee. After obtaining her degree in Civil Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece she undertook an MSc in Concrete Technology, Construction and Management and PhD at the University of Dundee. Her main interests are in the areas of foamed concrete, use of recycled and secondary aggregates in concrete and concrete durability.
