There are three grants to support outstanding research, each connected to research themes developed in partnership with industry:
Our Young Researchers' Conference showcases the most innovative work in universities around the world and issues prizes for outstanding projects and achievements in public speaking.
The fund is supported by members through voluntary donations. We currently allow an option for donations as part of our annual membership renewal process, but if you'd like to make a donation directly please contact our records team.
A unique opportunity to discuss the latest developments in intelligent and autonomous construction materials.
Provides a solid foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for the design of welded steel structures.
Tim Lucas discusses the importance of research taking place at UCL’s new “Here East” facility and how it relates to the Institution’s Digital Workflows Panel.
Jon Shanks discusses the small steps being taken towards new means of construction and how they might relate to the industry’s next Big Leap.
Information on the development of alkali-silica reaction (ASR) damage in the UK, the chemical process of ASR, and the diagnosis and assessment of expansion and cracking on concrete.
Alastair Low-Macrae, of our Structural Futures Committee, discusses how drones could alter the face of construction and help future engineers.
Matthew Gilbert and Paul Shepherd outline new methods developed as part of the UK government-funded BUILD-OPT research project, and how these can be applied to a range of design projects.
Digital technology has transformed structural engineering over the past 50 years. Now artificial intelligence, which includes machine learning, promises to do the same for engineering design and practice, especially for situations that are too complex for the current generation of programs.
The construction industry needs a shake-up and that shake-up has now arrived. PropTech or ConTech refers to the digital transformation of the construction industry. With that transformation, two tectonic shifts are about to occur: it will become the greatest time in history to be an engineer; and the master architect will return.
