Practical Advice for Practising Engineers

There has been considerable debate in the past about The Structural Engineer and whether it reflects the members’ wishes regarding the content of their journal. 5 years ago the view was expressed that it contained too many academic papers and too few that were of direct relevance to practising engineers.
