Novel materials and methods to achieve net zero - part 6 of 6.

The climate emergency is challenging engineers to consider a broader palette of non-traditional and/or novel structural materials. This webinar series looks at some of the alternatives, encouraging engineers to consider designing with these new materials and explaining how to deliver them successfully within projects.

This session focuses on timber concrete composites.

Speakers

James Norman

James worked in industry 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, and has been publishing in this area including Conceptual Design of Buildings (IStructE) and Designing Timber Structures (TRADA).

Wendel Sebastian

Wendel conducts research on low-carbon structures (timber-concrete composite floors, FRP bridges, prestressed stone members) that is of direct benefit to industry and feeds into design standards.  He combines numerical analysis and large-scale laboratory tests with field monitoring.  He is a consultant to multiple organisations, including Highways England and the World Bank.

Andrew Smith

Andrew is a Structural Engineer with Arup.
