ConstructionAM postponed to April 2022
In lieu of the canceled 2021 event, advanced materials for construction conference launches a free webinar series leading up to the April 27-28, 2022, event.
ConstructionAM: Advanced Materials for Construction, a conference that covers the latest advanced material projects and novel solutions in the construction sector, has been further postponed until April 27-28, 2022 in Manchester, U.K. According to organizers, the decision was made to fulfill the best interests of sponsors, speakers and attendees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moreover, to maintain momentum in the run up to the 2022 event, ConstructionAM organizers will be running 10 free-to-attend, hour-long webinars, beginning April 29, 2021. The webinar series will run on the last Thursday of every month (except for August and December) and will begin at each at 2:00 p.m. GMT (9:00 a.m. EST). The schedule is as follows:
- April 29, 2021: Advanced Materials for Infrastructure
- May 27, 2021: Advanced Materials in Industrial Applications
- June 24, 2021: Advanced Materials for Infrastructure
- July 29, 2021: Innovative Advanced Materials
- Sept. 30, 2021: Advanced Materials for Architecture

There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive.
The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
