Arup have assembled a package of quick and easy guides to help practising engineers understand the origins of carbon factors for three key construction materials: steel, concrete, and timber.
Paul Astle explores potential ways in which engineers can seek reductions in the embodied carbon of structural concrete.
The lecture covers robustness and disproportionate collapse in all building types, with a focus on existing buildings, as well as an introduction to the IStructE book's second edition.
