The Institution of Structural Engineers' Health and Safety Panel
But what constitutes something reasonably foreseeable? Mostly, engineers have to learn this from experience and that learning process ought to include keeping up to date with publicised events describing things that have gone wrong. Certain hazards relate only to particular structures and a risk assessment should be appropriate. Risk assessments should always consider the potential for human error along with the consequences.
This month we bring you another question from the Institution’s Structural Behaviour Course. The topic is indeterminate bending moment diagrams. Answers will be published in the August 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
Upcoming events at HQ and from around the regional groups.
