  1. Essential Knowledge Text No.17. Dynamics (PDF)

    Essential Knowledge Text No.17. Dynamics (PDF)

    £9.00 - Member
    £19.00 - Non-Member

    Note: Free to Student and Academic Members via: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge


    Structural dynamics is the study of how structures respond to loads that vary rapidly with time. This is an introduction to the subject, focusing on linear elastic structures.

  2. Essential Knowledge Text No.16. Stability (PDF)

    Essential Knowledge Text No.16. Stability (PDF)

    £9.00 - Member

    Note: Free to Student and Academic Members via: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge


    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.

  4. Essential Knowledge Text No.14. Principles for computer analysis of structures (PDF)

    Essential Knowledge Text No.14. Principles for computer analysis of structures (PDF)

    £9.00 - Member
    £19.00 - Non-Member

    Note: Free to Student and Academic Members via: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge


    This Text presents the ‘reflective approach’ to the computer analysis of structures, to ensure that the analysis model is a valid representation of the real structure and that the structural analysis has been carried out correctly.
