Tom Harley-Tuffs and Jonathan Russell from the Sustainability Panel explore how government legislation and investor commitments are causing clients globally to put carbon first.
Appendix A of Eurocode 2 permits a reduction in material partial factors for reinforcing steel and concrete. Designing elements with the reduced material partial factors reduces the amount of reinforcement steel required, hence a reduction in embodied carbon and energy, without any loss of performance.
This article discusses timbers and carbon, availability and end-of-life issues.
Muiris Moynihan MIStructE explains why use is so widespread, the materials' climate change impact, and why their responsible use is the realm of structural engineers.
How do we promote the reuse of existing building stock and reclaimed construction materials to enable a circular economy and support a whole-life carbon approach in the built environment?
This course is designed to enable you to design structures with net zero emissions. Delivered as a series of interactive online sessions across five weeks.
The aim of this webpage is to serve as a high-level guide for engineers about current and emerging lower carbon concrete technologies available in the UK market.
This technical lecture describes the prototyping, testing and design approach that enabled the realisation of the Arc, the gymnasium for the Green School in Bali, whose project team was awarded for advancing the structural application of low-carbon materials at the 2022 Structural Awards.
