Timber Systems - Structural Timber Association More and more house builders are beginning to appreciate the benefits of timber, with the material currently accounting for around 75% of the self-build market, as well as being widely adopted in social and private housing. During the recession, in reaction to a downturn in the housing market, many members evolved their businesses to adapt to changing market demands. As a result, the timber industry is no longer defined simply by the supply of timber frame kits and panelised solutions. It is driven by intelligent and integrated construction solutions, including cross laminated timber (CLT), glulam and SIPS.

Smart Materials Science and technology have made amazing developments in the design of electronics and machinery using standard materials, which do not have particularly special properties (i.e. steel, aluminum, gold). Imagine the range of possibilities, which exist for special materials that have properties scientists can manipulate. Some such materials have the ability to change shape or size simply by adding a little bit of heat, or to change from a liquid to a solid almost instantly when near a magnet; these materials are called smart materials. University of Leeds What are internships? An “internship” is an opportunity offered by an employer to potential employees, called “interns”, to work at a firm for a fixed, limited period of time. Interns are usually undergraduates or students, and most internships last for any length of time between one week and 12 months. Internships (also called “placements”, “work placements” or “industrial placements”) may be part-time or full-time.

Electroactive polymers (EAP) are being developed to enable effective, miniature, inexpensive, light and low power actuators for planetary applications. Various EAP materials, also called artificial muscles, are being investigated and new methods of characterizing them are being developed. A series of applications were demonstrated and can be seen on the EAP-in-Action homepage (video clippings). These applications include surface wiper, robotic arm components (lifter and gripper) and haptic interface.

Institution of Civil Engineers - Students and young learners To understand what civil engineers do, you need to think about what you do in the first hour after you wake up on a Monday morning. You clean your teeth using the running water in your bathroom. Have a cup of tea or coffee. You travel to work on a finely constructed network of roads or on a train or underground system. You park your car or grab another cup of coffee at the train station before heading to the office. Angle Ring - Gallery Images opposite represent some of our work to the present date.

Strategic Stone Study & Building Stone Quarries Strategic Stone Study England's rich architectural heritage owes much to the great variety of stones used in buildings and other structures. Stone buildings commonly reflect the local geology, imparting local distinctiveness to historic towns, villages and rural landscapes.
