For centuries, structures and infrastructure have provided more than functionality; they can influence, inspire and delight. This text describes how structural form has evolved.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis. Student Members and members of the Institution's Academic Community can download the series for free at: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge

Essential Knowledge Text No.4 Historical development of structural theories and methods of analysis

Essential Knowledge Text No.4 Historical development of structural theories and methods of analysis

Despite the many advantages of computer-aided analysis methods, structural engineers need to understand basic structural theory and its development. This understanding both ensures that we realise the limitations in our analytical abilities and enables us to validate computer output effectively.

Essential Knowledge Text No.12 Flexure and flexural structures

Essential Knowledge Text No.12 Flexure and flexural structures

This text is an introduction to the most important aspects of flexure in structures. A description of the widespread use of flexural elements and structures is followed by an introduction to the modelling and analysis of beams, slabs and frames. The text then discusses the use of four common structural materials in flexural elements and structures.
