In this winning entry to the Institution’s 2016 Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award, Tim Stratford describes the changes that the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering has made to its civil engineering degree programmes in order to put creative design at the heart of the learning process. The article discusses the motivation for these changes, the steps that have been taken to create a “design thread” for students, the results that have been achieved, future challenges relating to digital engineering, and learning points which will help other universities wishing to set out on a similar path.
In this article, we summarise CROSS newsletter No. 43 from Structural-Safety. Reports include: - Lack of lateral stability in steel frame - Worker trapped in excavation - Fall of material from bridge soffit - Injuries from falling scaffold tube - Alterations of calculations on loft conversion that was already built - Balustrade testing - Local wind effects
This comprehensive guide to prestressed concrete design is aimed at students and recent graduates, but will also be of use to more experienced practising engineers in Australia, concludes David Morris.
