This month we present another question from the Institution's Structural Behaviour Course, looking at the forces in a truss.
In this section we shine a spotlight on papers recently published in Structures – the Research Journal of The Institution of Structural Engineers. This month we preview the content of Volume 13 (February 2018). 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 offer more views on the former Institution yearbook, as well as load factors and safety margins; consider the need for certification of as-built drawings; call for the Institution to focus more on construction and erection of structures; and return to the topic of innovation in structural engineering.
