Proceedings of the 2015 International Conference on Architectural, Civil and Hydraulics Engineering

The 2015 International Conference on Architectural, Civil and Hydraulics Engineering (ICACHE 2015) has taken place in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China on November 28-29, 2015. We have invited scholars and researchers from all over the world to present the conference.

ICACHE 2015 attaches importance to presenting and publishing novel and fundamental advances in electromechanical control technology and transportation fields. Scholars and specialists on ICACHE 2015 will share their knowledge and amazing research. During the conference, an international stage is prepared for the participants to present their study theories. They will also find practical applications for these theories in related fields.

In order to organize ICACHE 2015, we have sent our invitation to scholars and researchers from all around the world. Eventually, over 250 submissions were submitted to us. These papers have gone through a strict reviewing process performed by our international reviewers. All the submissions were double-blind reviewed, both the reviewers and the authors remaining anonymous. First, all the submissions were divided into several chapters according to the topics, and the information of the authors, including name, affiliation, e-mail and so on, removed. Then the TPC chairs assigned the submissions to reviewers according to their research interests. Each submission was reviewed by two reviewers. The review results should be sent to chairs on time. If two reviewers had conflicting opinions, the paper would be transmitted to the third reviewer assigned by the chairs. Only papers which were approved by all reviewers were accepted for publication.

With the hard work from the reviewers, only 96 papers were finally accepted for publication. These papers were divided into three chapters:

- Architecture, Building Materials and Engineering Management
- Hydraulic Engineering
- Sustainable Development of Building Energy and Environment
- Urban Rail and Traffic Engineering

To prepare ICACHE 2015, we have received a lot help from a lot of people. We thank all the contributors for their interest and support to ICACHE 2015. We also feel honored to have the support from our international reviewers and committee members. Moreover, the support from the Atlantis Press is also deeply appreciated; without their effort, this book will not be able to come into being.
