This Technical Guidance Note covers the inspection of structural elements that are typically present within buildings during their construction and/or alteration phases.
This Technical Guidance Note describes the design and detailing of base plates – the primary means by which steel-framed structures transmit vertical loads into their foundations.
A significant-sized opening in a masonry wall will always require a lintel to bridge over it. This note offers advice on the different types of lintel that are available, their detailing requirements and their design.
This article highlights a report from CROSS newsletter 55 on a failure stemming from buildability issues.
A short guide to maternity and paternity legislation in the UK, and the benefits of being a modern, inclusive employer.
John Roberts introduces the Institution’s publications on the design, specification
and detailing of masonry structures.
This paper explores the reasons why failures of hanging systems occur and suggests that increased design attention is required to assure system safety.
Thomas Leslie explores the aesthetic philosophy of Italian engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, showing how he negotiated structural and fabricational ‘truths’ to create works that celebrated the constraints he practised within.
In this second part of our biographical look at Alistair Day and the technique of dynamic relaxation, we review some of the exceptionally innovative and structurally demanding projects to have made use of the method.
This project involved the design and construction of a structure comprising four tunnels with a total length of 2434m. An initial in situ concrete scheme was changed to a corrugated steel plate assembly, enabling improvements in material transportation and construction.
This paper discusses the design and construction of this award-winning building, including the constraints imposed by an inner-city site of archaeological interest, the requirements associated with specialist medical equipment, and the incorporation of extensive off-site construction methods into the structural design.
This paper describes how the 50-storey residential Principal Tower was designed and constructed on a site in the London Borough of Hackney close to the City of London.
Past President, Brian Clancy, calls on all parties to adopt the definitions set out in the Institution’s authoritative guide to subsidence.
This month's letters include memories of working with Alistair Day and using his dynamic relaxation method, methods of maintaining lateral stability in houses, together with the continuing debate on subsidence versus settlement among other topics.
Robert Reitherman is impressed by this forward-looking book which offers a future vision of creative engineers engaged in ‘structural architecture’.
The Editor-in-Chief has selected an article on composite structures for demountable construction as his featured article from the latest issue of Structures.
Library Manager, Rob Thomas, provides an insight into what the library can offer on the subject of tall buildings.
