In this section we shine a spotlight on papers recently published in Structures – the Research Journal of The Institution of Structural Engineers. A new issue of Structures (Volume 14, June 2018) is now available at www.structuresjournal.org . Editor-in-Chief, Professor Leroy Gardner, has selected a paper on ‘Exploring Bridge Dynamics for Ultra-high- speed, Hyperloop, Trains’ as his featured article. This will be available free of charge online for the next six months. Further highlights discuss the ‘Resistance of Axially Loaded T- and X-Joints of Elliptical Hollow Sections at Elevated Temperatures’ and ‘Ultimate Strength Analysis of Laminated Composite Sandwich Plates’.
This month we present a reader contribution from Rabee Kafina MIStructE on bending moment diagrams.
Designing deep basements for buildings in historic city-centre locations is always a challenging proposition. The Exhibition Road Quarter project at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London – providing a new entrance, courtyard and purpose-built gallery for temporary exhibitions – was no exception. This article discusses the key structural engineering challenges of the project.
