Where Now With the Teaching of Structures?

The need for changing emphasis in the teaching of structures to civil engineering students is considered in the light of evolution in structural engineering, the impact of the widespread use of computers, and the pressures on university curricula. Many aspects are examined, from theoretical awmptions through to conceptual design. This paper is intended to act as a stimulus for discussion. Professor A. Jennings and S. Gilbert
