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 Readers are reminded that the latest issue of Structures is a special issue presenting selected papers from the 11th International Conference on Advances in Steel-Concrete Composite Structures (ASCCS 2015), held in Beijing, China, on 3–5 December 2015.
Upcoming events at HQ and around the regional groups.
Are codified serviceability and stiffness criteria appropriate in a world increasingly focused on reducing material use and embodied carbon? Could new approaches to loading and movement offer ways to meet these goals? Does modern technology create the potential for adaptive designs which actively control deflections? This paper explores ways in which the structural engineering profession could move towards a truly performance-based design approach, drawing on examples from the work of Expedition Engineering and other engineers.
