  1. Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings (PDF)

    Practical guide to structural robustness and disproportionate collapse in buildings (PDF)

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    Incorporating robustness in buildings is essential and a stated aim of most regulations and indeed all material codes worldwide. Yet robustness is not readily defined. This Guide tries to provide common sense advice on what constitutes robustness. Learn More
  2. Appraisal of existing structures (Third edition) (PDF)

    Appraisal of existing structures (Third edition) (PDF)

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    Appraising is not for the faint-hearted nor for the inexperienced. This publication will both increase the confidence of the experienced engineer and teach the beginner about the entire process. This third edition updates the seminal work of its predecessors.

  3. A short guide to embodied carbon in building structures (PDF)

    A short guide to embodied carbon in building structures (PDF)

    £9.00 - Member
    £19.00 - Non-Member

    Climate change is widely accepted as one of the greatest challenges facing the world today. Since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, governments and world leaders have committed to reducing the output of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases in massive amounts, having a profound effect on most industries and in the development of technology to meet this aim.

    A short guide to embodied carbon in building structures provides essential guidance to structural engineers about how they can reduce the carbon footprint of structures, focusing mainly on embodied energy and carbon associated directly with the structure. Learn More
  4. Manual for the design of steelwork building structures (Third edition) (PDF)

    Manual for the design of steelwork building structures (Third edition) (PDF)

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    This manual provides guidance on the design of single and multi-storey building structures using structural steelwork. Structures designed in accordance with this manual will normally comply with BS 5950-1: 2000 as amended to March 2008. Learn More
  5. Guide to surveys and inspections of buildings and associated structures (PDF)

    Guide to surveys and inspections of buildings and associated structures (PDF)

    £19.00 - Member
    £29.00 - Non-Member

    Buildings and structures are becoming ever more complex, requiring broader based skills and greater knowledge. Materials such as glass, stainless steel and geogrids are commonplace, with more traditional materials (steel, concrete, timber and masonry) being used in more innovative ways. Learn More
  6. Dynamic performance requirements for permanent grandstands subject to crowd action (PDF)

    Dynamic performance requirements for permanent grandstands subject to crowd action (PDF)

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    Written for those with a responsibility for grandstands, including owners, operators, managers, architects, insurers, engineering designers, and local authority staff dealing with building control and safety issues, this publication supersedes both Dynamic performance requirements for permanent grandstands subject to crowd action: Interim guidance on assessment and design (2001) and Dynamic testing of grandstands and seating decks (2002).

  8. The operation and maintenance of bridge access gantries and runways (Second edition) (PDF)

    The operation and maintenance of bridge access gantries and runways (Second edition) (PDF)

    £29.00 - Member
    £59.00 - Non-Member

    Bridge gantries, whether used for access or for works, can be a cause of real danger.
    Despite considerable efforts to improve design, manufacture and management of gantries, failures have still occurred, and have resulted in fatalities and serious injury.
