This month at Monkeytoe June 2020
A note from Budd Welcome to the second half of 2020. We’re steaming through the year, working on some exciting projects with great clients on both sides of the Tasman. Take, for instance, the recent project for Coles Mt Gambier in South Australia.  The new Coles building had been designed to its limits, so they...
This month at Monkeytoe May 2020
A note from Budd We’re pleased to say that we’re back and fully operational in the office, having passed what seems to be the worst of what COVID’s thrown at us. We’re still making the most of our tech capabilities; our virtual presentations have proven such a success that we’re going to continue to offer...
Bigger, Taller Stronger: Realising the Potential of Carbon Fibre – Learn about Carbon Fibre Composites in Design
Carbon fibre is a relatively expensive technology, compared with traditional building materials like steel, aluminium or timber. However, its flexural strength, lightness and performance mean that it’s worth investigating the material’s strategic use. Take, for example, a sports car. Yes, you could build everything from the springs up out of carbon fibre, and while it...
Bigger, Taller Stronger: Realising the Potential of Carbon Fibre – Learn about the Efficiency of Carbon Fibre
Superior Performance Carbon fibre is exceptionally tough and effectively resists harsh chemicals or water that would cause corrosion or rust. Externally, it has great durability potential and tolerance to UV damage if designed well; it’s also non-magnetic and effectively blocks electromagnetic radiation. Carbon fibre is stable with changes in temperature and considered highly fire resistant....
Bigger, Taller Stronger: Realising the Potential of Carbon Fibre – Why Carbon Fibre?
Carbon fibres are like chicken mesh The structure of carbon in fibre depends on the manufacturing process, but the common theme is the hexagonal mesh of carbon atoms. At an atomic level, it looks like chicken mesh. Because the binding strength between carbon atoms is exceptionally high, carbon lattices are an order of magnitude stronger...
