This paper is concerned with the way in which the structural engineer applies his knowledge, skill and experience in the design of structures for buildings. The application of his knowledge-the art of structural engineering-is diflicult to define in the abstract. However, by considering some concrete examples it would appear that the main quality which the structural engineer must develop is an attitude of mind which allows him to apply his knowledge with sensitivity and subtlety and with complete regard for the needs of the building.

The Law as it Affects the Structural Engineer

The Law as it Affects the Structural Engineer

Structural engineers appear to have been fortunate enough to stay out of reported litigation. The law as it affects them must be gathered from cases relating in the main to architects and, in some instances, to other professional men. The big principles of duty to the client and to others generally can be stated with some confidence, but their application to any particular set of circumstances always requires much thought and that must particularly be the case here, where one lacks the expression of the courts’ views on the position of the structural engineer.

Degrees of Freedom of Plane and Space Frames

Degrees of Freedom of Plane and Space Frames

A unified general approach for the determination of the degrees of freedom or indeterminacy of plane and space frames is developed from basic concepts. The term ‘frame’ is used in a general sense and includes structures as well as mechanisms. K.S. Rangasami and S.K. Mallick

Practical Determination of the Buckling Load of a Prismatic Element

Practical Determination of the Buckling Load of a Prismatic Element

There are numerous theories-some very recent-for calculating the buckling load of a prismatic beam or column, but few practical methods of determining it. It is about one of these methods that I wish to speak. A. Lazard
