Materials Engineering: From the Lab to the Job Site

  • Kellogg Conference Center Northwestern University 340 East Superior Street Chicago, IL, 60611 United States

Join Us for a Conversation on
Innovations in New Building Materials

Materials that are available for construction projects has historically set the volume usage, the structural performance limits, and the project economics.  In the coming decades these constraints will remain, but additional ones will emerge related to sustainability considerations.  At the present time incremental improvements responsive to these challenges are being realized in the kinds of available materials.  This talk will present the framework for how this progress is being made.
