IOM3 Article: Transforming Foundation Industries
The built environment is our adaptation of the natural environment. It is complex with a multitude of materials and systems required to create sustainable cities and towns. Construction techniques and the design of buildings has improved dramatically in the last few decades, with greater emphasis placed on optimising materials use, reducing heat loss and distributing/generating heat efficiently. Three key projects funded by the programme are described.
- Sustainable Investment Assurance Model (SIAM), Dr Stephen Spooner, Coventry University (formerly University of Swansea)
- Investigation of a flat heat pipe for high-temperature waste heat recovery from metal slabs, Professor Hussam Jouhara, Brunel University
- Improved energy efficiency of float glass production, Dr Peter Green, University of Liverpool
