An introduction to the variety of roles offered by a career in civil engineering.
Bridges are one element of civil engineering. The provision of clean water is another. In this short film primary school children take part in a challenge to build a water filter. Read testimonials about another school’s experience of the challenge here.
Take a tour of bridges along the Thames with Langdon the Lion.
Weather has a chemical or physical effect on materials, including rock, concrete and meta. Heat causes metals, in particular, to expand. This can be demonstrated using a Gravesande’s ring. These videos show what happens when the equipment is heated: the metal expands.
Expansion of metal, and other materials, with heat is a problem faced in many structures, including bridges. Engineers have had to develop ways of dealing this.
