The climate emergency is challenging engineers to consider a broader palette of non-traditional and/or novel structural materials.
The Novel materials series explores how engineers can approach both design and construction with these materials in mind, and it offers practical advice on what to consider to utilise them successfully within projects.
In this webinar:
Mariska Van Der Velden, Eckersley O'Callaghan Engineers, present innovative uses of glass and its application as a structural material, with a review of various case studies. They also look at the application of load combinations in the upcoming Eurocode update and analyse briefly how structural glass can be used as a circular material.
Liesbeth Tromp will discuss the benefits and challenges of Fiber Polymer Composites in construction. Addressing its technical and sustainable life cycle aspects from case studies, Liesabeth will help engineers and project managers identify the opportunities where FPC can be a valuable and competitive alternative to traditional materials.

James worked on a wide variety of projects and has designed in a variety of materials, including steel, concrete, timber, earth, straw and glass. In 2015, James moved full-time into academia, where he teaches structural design with a focus on low-carbon solutions. He has co-written Conceptual Design of Buildings and Designing Timber Structures.
With a background in applied research and lightweight engineering, since 2010 Liesbeth has focused on implementing Fiber Polymer Composites in bridges and lock doors at the globally operating Engineering firm Royal Haskoning DHV. She actively contributes to developing design guidance, including the pre-Eurocode Technical Specification TS19101 Design of fibre-polymer composite structures.
In her role at Eckersley O'Callaghan, Mariska is making significant contributions to glass engineering and design. She’s involved in various R&D initiatives, and sustainability research, and participates in EDI and social committees, highlighting her commitment to innovation and responsible engineering practices.
