Technical Guidance Notes

Originally published in The Structural Engineer, the Institution's Technical Guidance Notes can be purchased by non-members to form the foundation of a structural engineering technical library. Written with recent graduates in mind, they also serve as useful 'refereshers' for more experienced engineers.

Level 1 notes provide the basis from which design skills can be developed (focusing on structural engineering core concepts) while Level 2 notes deal with more complex topics; typically the design of elements.

  4. Technical Guidance Note 17 Level 2 - Simple connections in steel frames (PDF)

    Technical Guidance Note 17 Level 2 - Simple connections in steel frames (PDF)


    £9.00 - Non-Member

    This Technical Guidance Note aims to clarify what a simple connection is by explaining its use when designing connections within steel frames. Learn More
  5. Technical Guidance Note 16 Level 2 - Design of reinforced concrete bored piles (PDF)

    Technical Guidance Note 16 Level 2 - Design of reinforced concrete bored piles (PDF)


    £9.00 - Non-Member

    This Note describes the method by which bored piles are designed using current UK practice; BS EN 1997 (Eurocode 7). It explains how to interpret soil conditions and design piles to match what has been discovered following a site investigation. Learn More
  6. Technical Guidance Note 15 Level 2 - Design of timber posts (PDF)

    Technical Guidance Note 15 Level 2 - Design of timber posts (PDF)


    £9.00 - Non-Member

    The design of timber elements in the UK, according to current codes of practice, is based on limit state theory. This Note adopts that approach to describe the design of timber posts. The reader should be familiar with the use of coefficient factors prevalent within BS EN 1995-1-1 (Eurocode 5).
