Social and Technical Advances with Structural Materials

Major technological advances in structural engineering that have recently been made, or are in the pipeline, are discussed with indications of how these offer much greater freedom of choice to engineers and to clients in their selection of structures in the future. They also permit more sophisticated designs optimising complex interdependent relationships, as well as a wider range of choice of basic materials and finishes. C. Hobbs
