Technical Guidance Notes (Level 3)

The Institution's Technical Guidance Notes have been conceived to provide technical guidance to both undergraduates and those in the early stages of their careers.

Experienced technicians may also find these notes helpful when looking to develop a greater understanding of structural design.

The notes are intended to be easily accessible and to form the foundation of a personal technical reference library.

Level 3 notes cover more complex topics that assume greater prior knowledge. As a rough guide, each Level 3 note assumes the reader is fully conversant with any relevant Level 1 and 2 notes that precede it.
