This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, will look at the structural steelwork construction process with a focus on established off-site processes and practices and the benefits provided.
This CPD module, sponsored by SCIA, introduces best practice guidelines for performing seismic analysis using the Modal Response Spectrum Method in finite element software. These principles ought to be well understood when applied to 3D models.
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, provides an introduction to fire protection of new steel-framed buildings. It will provide an overview of the performance of steel in fire, legislation and standards on fire resistance, fire resistance periods and fire protection options for steel-framed buildings.
This Technical Guidance Note explains how rolled steel I and H-sections are designed to resist torsion.
By adopting a creative approach to structural analysis, design and detailing, the structural principles of stone cantilever stairs can be combined and extrapolated to design and construct more refined structures in myriad applications.
This paper demonstrates that it can be appropriate to add part of the shrinkage strain to the cracking strain resulting from mechanical loads. A revision to the crack width expression 7.8 in Eurocode 2, which currently ignores this effect, is proposed and discussed.
The IStructE BIM Panel highlights key changes in the second edition of this protocol intended to provide consistency of approach in projects involving building information modelling.
Norman Train concludes his look at quality management systems by offering advice on how firms can set up a QMS.
Three companies of differing sizes share their approaches to fostering an inclusive workplace and a healthy gender balance within their engineering teams.
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 paper, based on a winning entry to the Institution’s Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Award 2015, provides an account of action research in the application of inverted classroom principles to teaching first-year undergraduate civil engineering students.
Isuru Nanayakkara looks at traditional technologies and modern approaches to lightweight shell construction to seek a better perspective on how shell technology can be appropriated to different local contexts.
This paper describes the structural design, from concept to delivery, of the Grand Theatre de Rabat in Morocco.
This paper gives an overview of the design and construction of this 7.7km marine viaduct in Kuwait, and explains how these were optimised to ensure successful delivery within the demanding programme constraints.
In 2018, BuroHappold Engineering and Studio X of the Hochschule Anhalt Graduate School of Architecture in Dessau, Germany, collaborated on the design and construction of the Hornet's Nest, a parametrically designed, temporary, timber pavilion assembled without the use of mechanical connections.
This month's letters consider potential carbon savings in domestic foundations; discuss building control and planning procedures again; ask questions about failures and forensic engineering; and encourage engineers to promote their achievements better.
This book on the durability of concrete in harsh conditions will make an excellent reference work for designers, concludes Long-yuan Li.
Dimitris Theodossopoulos is impressed by the excellent demonstration of applied research into recycling buildings in this ground-breaking book.
This month we present another question on bending moments from the Structural Behaviour Course.
Editor-in-Chief, Leroy Gardner, highlights two 'Featured Articles' from Volume 26 (August 2020) of Structures .
A roundup of online events and activities available from the Institution.
