Designing a post-fixed anchor can be a convoluted process, principally due to the number of variables involved when considering its use in any given situation. The anchor itself could be resin-based or mechanical, with this choice guided by the material it is to be fixed into and the required loads.
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 article highlights a report from the latest CROSS newsletter on disproportionate collapse assessment.
Rob Paul discusses factors which can affect a firm’s reputation and steps that can be taken to improve this.
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.
2020 President Don McQuillan – the Institution's 100th president – sets out his vision for the year in his inaugural address.
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 article discusses some of the technical challenges in the design of the building structure – prompted by its unusual arrangement and constrained site – and how they were overcome. In particular, it will focus on the design and construction of the 1073-seat Grand Theatre spanning 37m over a column free public plaza.
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 month's letters consider the future of the built environment, the sustainability of timber as a building material, and offer further views on subsidence, among other topics.
This book offers a good introduction to the philosophy and drivers for off-site manufacture, but may be less relevant to those interested in the structural and constructional issues that will affect the next generation of this form of manufacture.
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.
Editor-in-Chief, Leroy Gardner, selects an article on structural behaviour of prefabricated stressed-skin engineered timber composite flooring systems as his ‘Featured Article’ from Volume 22 of Structures .
The Library aims to cover all aspects of structural engineering – design, construction and maintenance – including technological developments. Although books, by their nature, take time to research, write and publish, the following recent additions to the Library collection address some emerging technologies.
