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 16: The monitoring of movement in historic buildings and structures

Conservation compendium. Part 16: The monitoring of movement in historic buildings and structures

Historic buildings and structures, like any other, move to some degree, whether due to thermal effects, changes in moisture levels in the structural fabric, influences on the founding subsoil, or environmental forces. The key question for the conservation engineer is to determine whether the movement is progressive and presents a risk to the structure. This article introduces engineers to the various techniques available to monitor movement in historic structures, from simple manual techniques which are less commonly used today, to sophisticated electronic systems. The form of monitoring will depend on the nature of the assumed movement, the funds available, and the possible consequences if the movement is progressive.

Conservation compendium. Part 7: Imposed load in historic buildings: assessing what is real

Conservation compendium. Part 7: Imposed load in historic buildings: assessing what is real

This article looks at some aspects of floor loading and how its application has changed for the better. It encourages a careful consideration of loadings to avoid unnecessary and irreversible loss of fabric through the application of significant strengthening schemes, cutting away existing historic framing.
