This text presents a range of emerging materials, both natural and man-made which, in the right circumstances, can offer significant advantages over traditional materials. For each type, key properties and methods of manufacture are summarised and its application in an example structure discussed.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis. Student Members and members of the Institution's Academic Community can download the series for free at: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge
