This Technical Guidance Note offers advice on the design of triangular timber trusses.
This article describes the use of structural optimisation at the conceptual design stage to identify materially efficient solutions that incorporate buildability considerations.
This Technical Guidance Note covers the inspection of structural elements that are typically present within buildings during their construction and/or alteration phases.
Rob Paul advises readers how to understand the commercial risk attached to a project and discusses steps that can be taken to mitigate this risk.
Tony Jones summarises the key recommendations for reform of the building safety regulatory system in the UK, and explores the impact these may have on structural engineers.
This article highlights a report from CROSS newsletter 56 on rotting of CLT panels.
Presenting the winners and commended projects in The Structural Awards 2019.
Amy Brander, winner of the Institution’s Pai Lin Li Travel Award in 2018, discusses her research into the WELL Building Standard and the potential to design buildings that prioritise the health and wellbeing of their occupants.
This paper explores the reasons why failures of hanging systems occur and suggests that increased design attention is required to assure system safety.
The structural engineering design of Manhattan Loft Gardens combined a high level of advanced analysis with a special focus on simplicity and constructability.
This article describes the design of the world’s first sprayed-net, hyperboloid, lattice ice structure, by a team from the University of Cambridge, for the Harbin Institute of Technology’s International Ice and Snow Innovation Construction Competition in 2018.
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 month's letters consider the environmental impact of flying, and return to the topics of the cost of professional indemnity insurance, subsidence issues, and building control on domestic projects.
Richard Lankshear explores ways in which structural engineers are uniquely equipped to help tackle the UK’s housing shortage.
This month's letters consider the restoration of Notre-Dame cathedral, the rising cost of insurance cover for engineers, subsidence terminology in insurance reports, lateral stability and other topics.
Upcoming events at HQ and around the Regional Groups.
Highlighting two papers in Structures : one on 'Fatigue design of selected details in steel bridges' and a second on 'Steel concrete composite systems for modular construction of high-rise buildings'.
Rob Wiesner's sketch demonstrates the direction of load paths and how the reinforced concrete core walls transfer at the lower levels of 1 Undershaft in London.
