A key component to the design of structures is a sound understanding of stability. This note explains the various methods of ensuring that lateral stability is achieved. As building and bridge construction has become increasingly ambitious, so the principles of stability are continually tested. This note also highlights the need for robustness in structures, as this is regarded as an aspect of structural design that can have an impact on strategies adopted for lateral stability.
