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.

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

<h4>Practical Determination of the Buckling Load of a Prismatic Element</h4>

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
