This month’s prize is shared between two winners: Kevin Lyons of Lyons O’Neill and Stephen Fernandez of Arup.
Congratulations to the winners of the annual Structures prizes, which recognise outstanding examples of pure and applied research. The prizes, for papers published in the journal during 2016, were announced at the Institution’s People and Papers Awards ceremony in London on 8 June. Structures is a collaboration between the Institution and Elsevier, publishing internationally-leading research across the full breadth of structural engineering which will benefit from wide readership by academics and practitioners. Access to Structures is free to Institution members (excluding Student members) as one of their membership benefits, with access provided via the “My account” section of the Institution website. The journal is available online at: www.structuresjournal.org
Stability and the middle-third rule, Brexit and the Eurocodes, climate change, seismic engineering, the Edinburgh Schools Inquiry, and engineers' contribution to bridge aesthetics are all topics that have spurred readers to put pen to paper this month.
