Congratulations to the winners of the 2021 Structures prizes, with papers exploring fibre-reinforced polymer composites and greenhouse gas emissions of structural systems.
Martin Williams is impressed by this engaging book, illustrated with a wealth of real-world examples, that will prove useful to young engineers at the start of their career in structural design and construction.
This month's letters discuss limits on what we should build in the push for net zero; salaries and the brain drain; the lack of appreciation of engineers' expertise; and education of students and young graduates, among other topics.
