This webinar explores the contemporary use of stone in a variety of structural applications. It showcases the versatility of this often-overlooked material.

New uses for traditional materials and craft can allow the realisation of geometrically simple, innovative structures that are elegant and environmentally ethical. Dimension stone has been a structural material for thousands of years, yet its use has steadily declined. The perception is that it is too expensive to quarry, cut and transport. Many now see this as suitable only for cladding or flooring. Yet, with a modern approach to structural usage, stone can realise its potential as a material fit for the 21st century.

Key learning objectives include:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the primary considerations when designing in stone
  • Knowledge of the design parameters required for un-reinforced and reinforced stone structures
  • Introduction to the basic principles of post-tensioned stone
  • Improved awareness of structural stone applications through a series of case studies
