Farringdon Elizabeth line station comprises two platform tunnels, each 245m long, between new ticket halls over 300m apart. Each ticket hall has been designed to accommodate future oversite developments.
This paper discusses the structural engineering challenges encountered during design and construction of the two ticket halls on constrained sites surrounded by existing transport infrastructure, utilities and historic buildings.
This month we present a reader contribution from Ewan Macpherson on shear forces.
This month we are delighted to announce the winners of the 2018 Structures prizes. Congratulations to Andrew Liew, Leroy Gardner and Philippe Block on winning the ‘Best Research Paper Prize’ for their paper on ‘Moment-Curvature-Thrust Relationships for Beam-Columns’ published in Volume 11, August 2017. We also congratulate Chris Burgoyne and Owen Mitchell on winning the ‘Best Research into Practice Paper Prize’ for their paper on ‘Prestressing in Coventry Cathedral’ published in Volume 11, August 2017.
