An IStructE account gives you access to a world of knowledge. Create a profile to receive details of our unique range of resources, events and training.
The influence of the digital world is increasing its impact on those involved with the built environment, whilst our capability to exploit data to inform designs and push the boundaries of what is possible is at the heart of structural engineering.
As our ability to monitor, record, extract and extrapolate information on the performance of our structures continues to improve there is a growing need to better understand how best to use the information.
The use of big data and AI tools are emerging challenges for the industry. It is the ability to understand and manipulate information with computational tools which may transform the role of structural engineers.
An increasingly online world requires robust digital security to mitigate potential infiltration of digital systems and the harm that could be caused to our infrastructure, whether it be financial damage, intellectual property infringement, criminal activity or terrorism.
Tristan Simmonds explores his engineering work on sculptural projects including the 2015 Milan Expo UK Pavilion ‘Hive’.
A brief overview of the various tools and techniques available for scripting within structural design.
How to integrate design, structural engineering and fabrication via digital workflows.
How digital fabrication is transforming the way we construct the built environment.
Tim Lucas discusses the importance of research taking place at UCL’s new “Here East” facility and how it relates to the Institution’s Digital Workflows Panel.
Peter Debney explores classic mistakes made in FEA models and how to avoid them.
How innovations in design technology are shifting the paradigm for construction.
Steve McKechnie explores building a culture of sharing and innovation where people are proud to talk about the work they do.
Geoff Morrow examines how design tools can augment traditional workflows, but not replace them.
Jon Leach discusses the objectives set out by the Institution's Digital Workflows and Computational Panel and where these will lead to.
A panel of experts explore if there is a better way of exchanging information between structural software packages, and how we intelligently manipulate data to make it fit for purpose.
Arthur and Stephen discuss the collaborative work between architect and engineer, highlighting the digital tools used throughout the process.
Francis Aish discusses the implementation of various computational design tools and how integration can benefit the design process.
Ashley Kacha gives an overview of future trends in structural engineering.
Pre-order now. This guide explains why overdesign is so prevalent, its impact on material consumption and CO 2 emissions, and provides five key actions you can take now, to reduce the carbon your projects produce.
This course is the second stage of our BIM training programme towards individual certification.
This course combines two existing BRE Academy courses, fast tracking participants to a stage where they can consider BIM certification.
This course discusses the key principles of BIM and will help site managers understand their responsibilities and the actions they need to take.
BRE offers BIM Essentials in 2 forms, this original course covers PAS 1192, while our BIM ISO 19650 course covers the new international standard. We also have the ISO 19650 classroom course.
This text presents the 'reflective approach' to the computer analysis of structures, to ensure that the analysis model is a valid representation of the real structure and that the structural analysis has been carried out correctly.
This overview offers ways to deal with the complexities of information systems in large and small practices.
Understand how to begin constructing a digital workflow and identify where there may be gaps in existing workflows.
