The Structural Engineer

The paper describes the evolution of Sydney Tower, introduces some examples of analyses involved in the study of its static and dynamic response, and finally presents some details of construction procedures. The structure of Sydney Tower is possibly unique in the sense that, having been 'tailored' to suit a particular set of circumstances and requirements,it offers a number of unconventional characteristics that make it appear distinctly different from other world-renowned towers. It can be characterised as a free-standing, cantilevered, post-tensioned, guyed steel structure. Alexander Wargon

This viewpoint describes the operation of a team which has been formed in order to design and supervise the construction of a fully-serviced building of over 20 000m2. The principles are equally applicable to smaller projects, but some of the roles described would be carried out by one person rather than several. Richard Gardner

Links for torsion and for shear Mr. L. Wadsworth has followed the correspondence on the form of links for resisting torsion recorntnended in CP 110, which he questioned in his letter published in July last year. He writes: The two attempts to explain the inconsistency in CP 110 regarding the demand, when torsion is being resisted for type 74 links rather than type 60 (Mr Cronin, February 1983, and Dr. Swann, May 1983) are singularly unconvincing.
