As structural engineering students, we learn about mild steel, modern design and
construction methods. However, historic structures often do not fit into this mould.
Whether you work in conservation or are a general practitioner, you are likely to come across cast iron, wrought iron, as well as early mild steel structures.

Concrete Design Guide. No. 2: Eurocode 6: Design of masonry structures for vertical loads

Some masonry design in the UK uses concrete blocks. BS EN 1996 (Eurocode 6) covers the design of masonry for buildings and civil engineering works and is organised into four parts. This design guide covers vertical load design (strength and eccentricity) and concentrated loads.

Conservation compendium. Part 12: Scaffolding of historic structures

In this article, issues associated with the scaffolding of historic structures are briefly explored and illustrated through four case studies. These are projects that crossed the author's desk, as a consulting engineer specialising in the conservation of historic structures, within a few months of each other. They explore some of the constraints imposed by 'historic fabric' and other factors, the compromises made, and the solutions reached.
