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.11 Triangulated structures

Essential Knowledge Text No.11 Triangulated structures

This is an introduction to the most important aspects of triangulated structures. Triangulated structures are widely used and can provide stiffness with very little structural material. Being formed from many interconnecting parts, a knowledge of several aspects of modelling, analysis and design is needed to be able to understand their structural behaviour.

Essential Knowledge Text No.15 Approximate analysis of skeletal structures

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.
