This month we bring you a question from the Institution’s new Structural Behaviour Course. The topic is trusses. Answers will be published in the May issue.
In this section we shine a spotlight on papers recently published in Structures – the Research Journal of The Institution of Structural Engineers. Structures is a collaboration between the Institution and Elsevier, publishing internationally-leading research across the full breadth of structural engineering which will benefi t from wide readership by academics and practitioners. Access to Structures is free to Institution members (excluding Student members) as one of their membership benefits, with access provided via the “My account” section of the Institution website. The journal is available online at: www.structuresjournal.org
Members who do not have access to the IHS Construction Information Service or are looking for earlier versions of documents are reminded that the Institution Library holds an extensive collection of current and past technical guidance reports published by such bodies as the BDA, BRE (formerly BRS), CIRIA (formerly CERC and CERA), The Concrete Centre, The Concrete Society, SCI (formerly Constrado) and TRADA (formerly TDA).
