Novel materials and methods to achieve net zero: part 3 of 6.

The climate emergency is challenging engineers to consider a broader palette of non-traditional and/or novel structural materials. This webinar series looks at some of the alternatives, encouraging engineers to consider designing with these new materials and explaining how to deliver them successfully within projects.

During this webinar our panel will use case studies to:
  • Cover the basics to enable you to design a straw bale house
  • Explore the straw bale journey: from research into construction performance to commercial application
  • Discuss the scaling of straw bale for mainstream construction through Modern Methods of Construction
  • Outline international methods, load-bearing and non load-bearing applications, innovations for its use as insulation and structural applications
  • Review The State of the Art for the use of straw and bio-based materials; their resistance to decay and fire; how (along with timber) they provide a scalable carbon capture and storage opportunity for the built environment 
Reasons to view:
  • Learn more about innovation in the use of bio-based materials in construction
  • Gain insight into methodologies for use in MMC
  • Gain an understanding of design life and performance against fire
  • Hear about carbon footprinting, capture and storage
Who should view:
  • Graduate structural engineers
  • Design engineers
  • Engineers working in SMEs
  • Architects
  • Structural engineering students
