Much work remains to be done developing materials for a variety of civil engineering applications Materials are ever-present in our activities: without them we would have nothing to construct with. For many, though, they are means to ends, not subjects worthy of study in their own right. We tend be over-familiar with them and have little of the detailed understanding needed to address the concepts underlying existing and emergent materials. 'What new materials are available for designers and constructors?' is a temptingly simple question asked by engineer, architect or client, but it may not bring the straightforward response expected.
