This month we bring you another question from the Institution’s Structural Behaviour Course. The topic is bending moment diagrams. Answers will be published in the June issue. (NB This article was updated on 3 May 2016 to correct the diagrams for May's question and possible answers.)
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 benefit 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
This month's letters discuss media coverage of structural engineering, the thorny issue of "reasonably practicable", the role of the principal designer, the need for greater recognition of temporary works, and the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
