A 'reflective approach' to the computer analysis of structures, ensuring that the analysis model is a valid representation of the real structure and that structural analysis has been carried out correctly. 

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.16 Stability

Essential Knowledge Text No.16 Stability

Stability is one of two fundamental requirements of a structure, the other being equilibrium. Lack of stability during construction or service life can cause catastrophic structural failure. Stability is necessary against horizontal loads, asymmetric loading, out-of-plane loading and the effects of geometric imperfections, loading eccentricities and tolerances.

Essential Knowledge Text No.15 Approximate analysis of skeletal structures

Some form of approximate analysis remains essential for both the conceptual design of structures and verification of final (computer) analysis. This text presents simple approaches to the approximate analysis of two-dimensional skeletal structures.

Essential Knowledge Text No.13 Behaviour of beams and two-dimensional frames

Essential Knowledge Text No.13 Behaviour of beams and two-dimensional frames

This is an introduction to the understanding of structural behaviour - applied to two-dimensional, mainly redundant frames. It demonstrates a qualitative approach, with an emphasis on a diagrammatic solution consisting of the detected shape, reactions and bending moment diagrams. A clear convention is established for the axes and diagrams, which is key to understanding structural behaviour.
