This CPD module, sponsored by MAPEI, introduces the use of FRP for the structural strengthening of reinforced concrete structures. It provides an overview of the composite materials and the design approach for flexural, shear and axial strengthening.
This CPD module, sponsored by IDEA StatiCa UK, introduces CBFEM, a method to analyse and design connections of steel structures, which is a synergy of the standard approach to connection design (component method) and finite elements.
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, examines a number of steel’s credentials specifically on its ability to be reused, recycled and multi-cycled, its structural efficiency as a construction material, and its alignment and application to circular economy principles.
The article explores ways to justify reuse of existing structures through a thorough understanding of the original building structure, and engineer’s intent.
This article discusses the analysis and modification of existing structures for new uses, allowing return on investment to be maximised and reducing the need for present-day carbon emissions from new construction.
This article outlines methods of underside and topside ceiling inspection, how to interpret the inspection's findings, and specifying an appropriate maintenance or remedial strategy.
Marketing expert, David Brett, shares his top tips on how to ensure your webinar goes to plan and makes the right impression on your audience.
Kristy MacDonald explains how the Institution of Structural Engineers Benevolent Fund can support members in financial difficulty or when suffering from mental health problems.
Sally Desborough explains why mental health has been a hot topic over the past year and why it is so important that workplaces make mental health a priority.
Carefully designed feedback events can have a significant impact upon understanding of structural behaviour for students preparing for professional status, according to this study at the University of Salford.
In his winning entry to the Institution’s Kenneth Severn Award 2020 – an annual essay competition for young engineers – Will Rogers-Tizard argues that structural engineers can help tackle the climate emergency by making better use of materials, understanding carbon values and questioning industry norms.
This paper, based on the winning entry to the Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award 2019, presents a multifaceted yet controlled exploration of the potential to achieve progressive change towards a new vision of structural engineering education.
This article describes the design of Hams Way Footbridge from concept through to construction, including an assessment of the embodied carbon.
The article showcases the University of East Anglia's Enterprise Centre project, a low-carbon, sustainable building which achieves both Passivhaus standard and BREEAM Outstanding rating.
This article describes the structural reuse and strengthening strategies adopted to enable three additional storeys to be added to an existing office building in London.
Margaret Cooke considers what the structural engineering profession can learn from other sectors to create a culture where women and men can flourish equally at work.
This month's letters again address the topics of floor loading and safety factors, as well as the need to maintain a healthy work–life balance among other subjects.
MIT professor Caitlin Mueller gave the keynote presentation at the IStructE Digital Design and Computation conference in May 2021. Here, she tells Jackie Whitelaw how computer tools she’s developing will help structural engineers design for zero carbon
Editor-in-Chief, Leroy Gardner, has selected a paper on fatigue analysis of wire arc 3D printed components as his ‘Featured Article’ from Structures Volume 31.
A roundup of online events and activities available from the Institution and its Regional Groups.
Editor-in-Chief, Leroy Gardner, has chosen to highlight a paper on soil–structure interaction and performance-based seismic design as his ‘Featured Article’ from the April 2021 issue of Structures .
