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 9: Corrosion of steel frames behind masonry elevations – an introducti

This article is the first of two which will discuss the problem of corrosion of steel frames behind masonry elevations. It aims to provide an introduction to this form of construction and to consider the ways in which lack of maintenance can lead to corrosion of the steel frame, before setting out how remedial work should be approached.

Conservation compendium. Part 5: Inspection and repair of cantilever stone staircases

Cantilever stone staircases have been used in all sorts of buildings for more than 350 years. Unfortunately, when surveying buildings we can be so intent on getting from floor to floor that we forget to look at the stairs on the way. Like all structures, stairs need regular inspection and maintenance; without which, collapses can ultimately occur.
