Abstract

Every year approximately 2.8 Gt of cement is produced worldwide, resulting in a global concrete usage approaching 1.5 m3 per person per year (USGS, 2008). Whilst the components of concrete are easily found and extracted, our most widely used man made material has a moderately high embodied energy (Hammond et al, 2008) and cement manufacture alone is estimated to account for 3 % of global CO2 emissions (WRI, 2005). This suggests that concrete should be cast in optimised, variable section structures that minimise material use and capitalise on the fluidity of concrete.
