Viewpoint: There is more to a flower than a STEM

Four Past Presidents of the Institution – Professor John Nolan, Professor Nick Russell, Professor Ian Firth and Professor Tim Ibell – argue that attracting, enthusing, nurturing and launching the next generation of structural engineers should look different to that which we have seen in the past.

Technical Guidance Note (Level 2, No. 19): Design and detailing of windposts to masonry walls

Technical Guidance Note (Level 2, No. 19): Design and detailing of windposts to masonry walls

Thin panels of masonry in large buildings, or cavity wall skins, require additional horizontal support to make them stable. The element that provides this support is a vertical prop known as a ‘windpost’. Its principal role is to provide lateral support against destabilising horizontal forces that typically originate from wind pressure – hence, the name. Windposts are typically steel elements – either open sections, such as channels or angles, or closed sections, such as rolled hollow rectangular sections. This Technical Guidance Note provides guidance on the design and detailing of windposts relating to their incorporation into building structures.
