This Technical Guidance Note explains how rolled steel I and H-sections are designed to resist torsion.

It should be read in conjunction with Level 1, No. 21 How to avoid torsion, which provides an introduction to torsion and discusses how it can be avoided.

This is the first ‘Level 3’ note in the Technical Guidance Note series. Level 3 will cover more complex topics that assume greater prior knowledge on the part of the reader. As a rough guide, each Level 3 note assumes the reader is fully conversant with any relevant Level 1 and 2 notes that precede it.

Understanding the cost of structural steelwork. Part 1: Initial estimates

Cost is a key consideration in many design decisions, so an understanding of approximate costs and cost drivers is a professional skill that structural engineers are advised to develop through their careers. This article provides an introduction to initial cost estimates for structural steelwork and the key cost drivers in the early design stages of a project.
