Increasingly engineers see the use of glass and timber as a way to lower a project’s carbon footprint. Design and scripting will play a big part in the future of these structures, as engineers look to push boundaries using the latest computational technology.
This conference is an exciting opportunity to hear from world leaders in the innovative use of glass and timber and get hands on experience with Grasshopper and Tekla.
Material science and structural engineering: A chance to make a difference
Cormac Deavy (Director, Arup)
Cormac will provide a brief insight into his career from a materials science perspective – exploring both the use of traditional materials in non-typical ways and the use of alternative materials.
Computational engineering: resolving catastrophic complexity through mass collaboration
Al Fisher (Head of Computational Development, BuroHappold Engineering)
Al will use case studies to argue that open source and collaborative approaches to technology development can drive change, improve the way we work and build a foundation for solving society’s most pressing problems.
Engineering: a material world
Brian Eckersley (Director, Eckersley O’Callaghan)
Brian will discuss the thought processes behind material selection and the impact this has on structures. He will explore a range of EOC’s work, including the modular timber system of the Vitsœ Headquarters in Leamington Spa, the super-lightweight carbon fibre roof of the Steve Jobs Theater in California, and the practice’s revolutionary work with structural glass.
An introduction to algorithmic modelling with Grasshopper/Rhino and Tekla structures - learn how Grasshopper and Tekla are linked together and how these can be used across multiple platforms and packages.
Hear from the winners of the Institution’s 2018 Kenneth Severn and Pai Lin Li Awards on the future of structural engineering and the next generation of buildings.
