<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 32): Floor slab construction</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 32): Floor slab construction

When developing a scheme for a structure, the choice of floor slab construction is critical to the columns, foundations, walls and overall stability. As such, the floor slab’s form should be selected with care and consideration. This Technical Guidance Note provides information about a number of common floor construction forms that are currently available. It focuses on concrete based solutions: some acting compositely with steel elements, such as reinforcement and/or steel members. Descriptions of each flooring system together with their key features (which cover topics such as buildability, aesthetics and compatibility of other elements e.g. building services) are included. Please be aware that floor slab technology is continually evolving and that new floor slab solutions continue to become available as a result.

<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 35): Introduction to structural glass</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 35): Introduction to structural glass

This technical guidance note is an introduction to glass as a structural material. It aims to describe glass in terms of its properties, how it reacts when subjected to various forces and the methods currently being explored and adopted by structural engineers when designing structural glass elements.

<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 11): Floor vibration</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 11): Floor vibration

This Technical Guidance Note is an introduction to the assessment of floor vibrations. Since the adventof lighter structures that have longer spanning elements within them, the built in dampening effectbuildings have had historically has become less pronounced. Despite this, floor vibration canbe an overlooked criterion during the design process. This can lead to expensive remedial works being carried out on structures after they have been built, as occupants complain of discomfort due to excessive movements and vibrations.
