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 article covers the reasons for post-tensioning stone, the advantages of doing so, and presents a series of projects that demonstrate the evolution and development of engineers' expertise and understanding at Webb Yates.
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.
Neil Wakeman gives an overview of the development of collaborative business relationships in accordance with internationally recognised standards
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.
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 article presents a retrospective, personal account of the design of the stone arches for the Padre Pio church in Italy between 1990 and 2004. Inspired by a resurgence in interest in stone as a structural material, it seeks to relate the design development of this innovative project and discuss some of the hurdles that had to be overcome when working outside codes of practice.
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.
Engineers must resist pressure to build environmentally unsustainable schemes if we want to be judged well by future generations, says 2020 Gold Medal winner and former Institution Vice-President, Mike Cook.
This month's letters discuss the need to make climate decisions on the basis of 'whole-life carbon'; speaking with a strong voice in design meetings; anticipating future use; sustainable foundation design; and other topics.
This book provides a high-level introduction to whole-life costs in building design, explains Paul Astle, and will be of most use to students or junior engineers seeking to broaden their understanding of other disciplines and influences.
We are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Structures prizes – for papers published in the journal during 2019.
A roundup of online events and activities available from the Institution.
This month we present another question on bending moments from the Structural Behaviour Course.
