A three-volume package comprising:

Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing:

Part 1 considers:

  • actions and combinations

  • stability systems

  • stability during construction, service life and change of use

Part 2 considers:

  • vertical framed bracing (analysis, design and specification)

  • diagrids and other trangulated strucutral forms

 

Stability of buildings Parts 3: Shear walls:

This guidance covers shear walls; assisting structural engineers in the development of shear wall systems and illustrating the choices in their design and construction, specifically:

  • an overview of shear wall design

  • requirements of walls

  • elastic theory of thin-walled sections

  • modelling and analysis

  • monolithic and non-monolithic shear wall construction

  • shear infill panels

 

Stability of buildings Parts 4: Moment frames:

This guidance covers best practice in moment frame design. These complex, diverse structural elements need to be considered carefully and modelled correctly, and this part of the series focuses specifically on:

  • an overview of moment frame design

  • buckling stability

  • plastic analysis

  • analytical modeling of joints

  • simplified analysis methods

  • moment frames in application
