To enable the modelling of arch bridges in three dimensions, the load-bearing areas within the arch barrel need to be identified. Moiré Photography provides a suitable technique for recording displacements over a whole surface; analogy between a simple wall and an arch barrel can be established. Professor W.J. Harvey and J. Simon

The design process for constructional steelwork is essentially a sequential one, in which many decisions made at the conceptual and member-sizing stages affect the downstream activities of detailing, fabrication, and erection. The objective of the work described here is to improve the quality of the design through the making of better informed decisions that are based on a wider range of features than is usually possible using traditional approaches. This is achieved using novel information technology tools that will facilitate such an infirmed and integrated process of design. Professor D.A. Nethercot, Dr W.M.K. Tizani and Professor N.J. Smith

Axial loads acting through lateral displacements of building and industrial structures cause additional displacements and forces. These effects commonly known as second-order effects, or alternatively as P-Delta effects, can produce significant loads and deformations that need to be considered in the design of building structures as specified by most modern building codes. This article discusses the analytical and design issues involved in second-order analysis of buildings under static and dynamic loads, with particular emphasis on the application of computer based tools.

Improving our Image Roger Jones has given thought to the twin problems of improving engineers’ image among the public and attracting good people into engineering. He writes from St Albans: I refer to the question posed on the options and priorities both to attract more people into engineering, and improve public perception (Verulam 17 October 2000).
