The twisting of elements within structures due to eccentric loading is best avoided. This note shows structural engineers how to avoid problems that can lead to significant remedial works and/or failures.
The chosen form of any substructure is entirely dependent on what the site investigations reveal. It is typically up to the structural engineer, with the aid of geotechnical engineers and specialists, to determine the extent of this investigation and interpret its results.
It is essential for structural engineers to be able to express their ideas clearly through their designs. This note describes two common techniques used to draw in three dimensions.
