<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 13): Reading structural steelwork drawings</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 13): Reading structural steelwork drawings

This Technical Guidance Note describes how drawings for structural steelwork are developed and read. They have their own unique set of rules and nomenclature and it is important for engineers to understand all of these rules in order to communicate and interpret the design of steelwork structures. This guide is split into two sections; the first contains the information a designer of the steel elements provides, whilst the second contains the information a fabricator creates in order to manufacture and construct the steel structure. While one feeds into the other, the level of detail each set of information provides is very different, due primarily to the end result. One is informing the manufacture of the steelwork, while the other focuses on its installation.

<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 17): Element size estimation</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 17): Element size estimation

Once the concept and scheme for a structure has been settled upon, the initial sizing of the elements that it is made up of commences. This Technical Guidance Note provides a set of hints as to how to initially size elements, prior to carrying out the detailed design. This process allows the engineer to gain an appreciation of the form of the structure and the changes that may be required if element sizes prove to be too onerous following this size estimation process.

<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 10): Principles of lateral stability</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 1, No. 10): Principles of lateral stability

This guide explains the various methods that can be adopted to ensure that lateral stability to structures is achieved. This note also highlights the need for robustness in structures as it is regarded as an aspect of structural design that can have an impact on strategies adopted for lateral stability. All of the guides in this series have an icon based navigation system, designed to aid the reader. Access more Technical Guidance Notes through our series homepage .
