  1. Stability of buildings Part 3: Shear walls

    Stability of buildings Part 3: Shear walls

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    This publication is the third in a four-part series focusing on lateral load resisting systems; a narrow sub-set of the many types of stabilising structures but which is widely dubbed ‘the stability system’ of a building. Also available to purchase in PDF format.

  2. Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing

    Stability of buildings Parts 1 and 2: General philosophy and framed bracing

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    Stability of buildings, Parts 1 and 2 represent the first two parts in a four part series written primarily for graduate design engineers, particularly those embarking on scheme designs or approaching a professional review. To other, more experienced engineers the publication will provide a useful reference point and contains a concise design checklist to this end.
    Part 1 covers fundamental concepts of vertical stability, while Part 2 focuses on framed (triangulated) bracing. The Guide is illustrated throughout by clear structural philosophy cartoons, case histories, analytical extracts and valuable references for those who wish to be well read on the subject. Also available to purchase in PDF format. Learn More

  4. Structural design – achieving excellence

    Structural design – achieving excellence

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    This report provides an overview of the tasks undertaken by structural engineers during both design and construction. It covers the different stages that engineers will encounter as they progress through the design and construction of a project - from inception and scheme design, through detailed design and finally to construction. Also available to purchase in PDF format.

  5. Structural design – the engineer's role

    Structural design – the engineer's role

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    Structural design – the engineer’s role outlines the process of structural engineering design and the contribution that structural engineers make to a construction project. The decisions that a structural engineer has to take and the type of advice that they contribute to a project team are succinctly described. As such, this report will be of interest to a wide audience including those who seek advice from structural engineers or need to procure their services, those who need to collaborate with structural engineers and those in training to be structural engineers. Also available to purchase in PDF format. Learn More
  6. Structural use of glass in buildings (Second edition)

    Structural use of glass in buildings (Second edition)

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    Glass has, in relatively recent times, undergone significant increase in its use within our built environment, especially as a structural material. This Guide updates and revises the Institution of Structural Engineers’ well renowned and respected text Structural use of glass in buildings. Also available to purchase in PDF format. Learn More
  7. Building for a sustainable future: An engineer’s guide

    Building for a sustainable future: An engineer’s guide

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    Sustainability has evolved in recent years to become the focus of national and international attention. This Guide is an evolution of the Institution’s thought-leading Building for a sustainable future: Construction without depletion, published in 1999, and delivers guidance to support and encourage structural engineers to engage with and deliver increasingly sustainable projects. Also available to purchase in PDF format. Learn More
  8. Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse

    Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    Robustness is considered an essential aspect of good structural design practice. A risk assessment is a requirement for all structures – designing a structure to be less sensitive to damage renders it safer and reduces risks. The intention of this Manual is to help the structural engineer in the process of preparing a systematic risk assessment for high-risk structures. It also highlights the responsibilities of the client and the communications needed between the structural engineer and client. Also available to purchase in PDF format.

  9. Risk in structural engineering

    Risk in structural engineering

    £39.00 - Member
    £69.00 - Non-Member

    This Report aims to provide practical guidance on ‘risk in structural engineering’ by describing the types of risks that may affect structural engineering work and by providing a decision making framework for risk, taking account of legal principles, available guidance and research. The scope is not limited to the design of new works; risks will occur throughout the life cycle of a building or structure; from concept through detailed design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance, dismantling, demolition and ultimately to disposal. Also available to purchase in PDF format.
