‘Stability’ is one of two fundamental requirements of a structure, the other being ‘equilibrium’. The lack of stability during construction or during the life of a structure can cause catastrophic structural failure. Stability is necessary against horizontal loads, asymmetric loading, out-of-plane loading and the effects of geometric imperfections, loading eccentricities and tolerances. The global stability system must form a core component of the overall structural design, and is accompanied by considerations to ensure the design of individual structural members.
