Abstract

Construction is the oldest field of work in the history of transportation means. In the Stone Age, people constructed carriages and ships from wood. Since the Industrial Revolution steel has gained the leading role in construction. Today, there is a broad range of literature and experiences are nearly unlimited for vehicle, airplane, and ship construction. For this reason, the main aspect of the current development in construction is to find the optimal path for decreasing fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions.
