There have been significant developments in the structural design of commercial and other multi-storey buildings in the UK since 1980. At its maximum in 1989, the market for steel in this sector reached over 400 000 t.

Synthetic thinking between engineers, architects and designers The profession of civil engineering and its offspring - structural engineering - has its roots in the discipline and hierarchical nature of imperial armies acting on behalf of certain western countries. Here were born the tenets of economy and efficiency. I. Ritchie

<h4>An Evaluation of Bond Pullout Tests and Their Relevance to Structural Performance</h4>

An Evaluation of Bond Pullout Tests and Their Relevance to Structural Performance

Pullout test specimens are widely used in the ussessment of bond performance of reinforcement. However, there are objections to the form of such tests, particularly where ribbed bars are concerned, as the failure mode in pullout tests is very different from that in practical circumstances and failure strengths are considerably higher than design values.

<h4>Gold Medal address 2016: The Adventure of the Itinerant Engineer</h4>

Gold Medal address 2016: The Adventure of the Itinerant Engineer

In this highly personal address, 2016 Institution Gold Medallist, Robert Halvorson, describes how his long relationship with structural engineering practice and with the UK began with Sherlock Holmes. Halvorson explains how, in many ways, his career has been guided, for better or for worse, by how Holmes conducted his consulting practice. His detective practice involved many of the same issues that engineers face: his work required technical knowledge; he had clients of all sorts to deal with; he worked with intransigent public officials; he had to use his skills to investigate unknowns and arrive at logical conclusions; and so on. Halvorson shares some of the little bits of wisdom that others – colleagues, friends and, of course, Holmes himself – have shared with him over the years.
