About IStructE Technical ReportsThe Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) is the worlds leading professional body for structural engineering with over 23,000 members in over 100 countries around the world. It is a leading source of expertise on all structural engineering and public safety issues in the built environment. IStructE has a long-standing reputation for the production of authoritative technical reports. Each report is subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure to ensure that the guidance is relevant, practical and up-to-date. The drafting of IStructEs technical reports is carried out under the auspices of the Technical Publications Panel, which reports to IStructEs Engineering Practice Committee. Once the Panel has accepted the proposal to write a report (or revise an existing one) a task group is formed under the chairmanship of an appropriate IStructE member. The membership of task groups necessarily varies according to the nature of the report to be produced. In all cases, IStructE invites people with the appropriate expertise to serve on task groups, and in some cases these will include professionals who are not members of IStructE. Where other organisations are invited to provide nancial sponsorship of a report, they are normally invited to nominate someone to represent them on the task group. IStructE members resident outside the UK are also often invited to be corresponding members of task groups. In order for a report to be accepted for publication, it must be assessed by the Technical Publications Panel. The Panel appoints specialist assessors for each report who are asked to review the draft report prior to the Panels meeting and recommend to the committee whether it should be accepted for publication or whether further work is required. At the same time, copies of the draft are sent to all members of IStructEs Council, Engineering Practice Committee and the Technical Publications Panel, each of whom is invited to submit their comments. If, following these comments and the reports by the assessors, the Panel is satised that the report should be published by IStructE, it will be approved subject to legal review. It should be noted that IStructEs reports are intended for use as guidance and not to provide the denitive approach in any situation as, in all circumstances, the party best placed to decide on the appropriate course of action will be the structural engineer undertaking the particular project. This catalogue provides a comprehensive list of the technical publications currently available from IStructE, which are categorised under three broad topics: Basic Concepts; Design Guidance; and Guidance on Appraisal.

This report is intended to become a standard reference for work in structural design ofces to be used in conjunction with the normal design codes and manuals. The objective has been to provide guidance of good practice and a working document on structural concrete that can be used to interpret the designers instructions in the form of drawings and schedules for communication to the site. This edition considers the effects, as far as possible, of Eurocode 2 on detailing principles and materials and attempts to provide guidance consistent with the Eurocodes. In addition, recent changes in practices and procurement of detailing services have been considered, such as the development of increased off-site fabrication and detailing being undertaken later in the construction sequence through initiatives such as contractor detailing. The information and advice is based on Eurocodes and UK practice, which is associated with UK materials and labour costs. The principles and details are relevant for use in most parts of the world with only minor adjustment.

Expert evidence A guide for expert witnesses and their clients (second edition, 2003)This is the second edition of the Institutions guide on expert evidence. It has been substantially revised to take into account the Civil Procedure Rules that came into effect on 26 April 1999 and that now govern civil litigation in England and Wales. The Civil Procedure Rules supersede the majority of the previous procedural rules. They radically change the rules governing experts and expert evidence by requiring a more restrictive and proportionate approach. This guide gives an overview of the principal rules of the Civil Procedure Rules, relating to experts and their evidence. It also covers the nature of legal proceedings, the specic role and responsibilities of an expert, and the functions that they are required to perform. This guide will be of benet to structural engineers and their clients. The guidance in this report is strictly applicable only in England and Wales, but it contains much useful information applicable in other jurisdictions.

Introduction to the re safety engineering of structures (2003)The design of building structures for re is developing at a signicant pace in line with re safety engineering as a whole. It is certainly starting to have a growing impact on the way structures are designed, procured and specied in many countries throughout the world. New procedures, advanced analytical methods and improved risk assessment techniques are now available to the experienced engineer to support performance-based design for the re load case. However this knowledge tends to be in the hands of a few specialists and consequently IStructE has identied the need for guidance at a level that will be of value to a wide range of construction professionals. This report has been prepared to provide the engineer, the architect, the regulatory authorities and other construction industry professionals with the inspiration to develop safer and better value solutions for the performance of building structures during re. There is a considerable opportunity for the engineer and the architect to work together to develop improved designs based on new and developing technologies within a sensible regulatory framework.

Structural Engineering: History and development (1997)The papers contained in this book were presented by eight Institution gold medallists at a seminar held on the 4th May 1994, the sixtieth anniversary of the grant of the Institutions Royal Charter. These papers are prefaced by one from Cyril Morgan who was secretary of IStructE from 1961 to 1982. The book was edited by R J W Milne.
