About this Unit
This unit deals with the behaviour of building materials and products in the construction context, including concrete, timber, metal, composites and polymers. An introduction will be given first on how material behaviour and properties are affected by micro-structure, composition and environment. Materials will be discussed in detail according to their physical properties and how they degrade in context. We will also discuss how the materials are manufactured and used and what their environmental impacts are.
