This article discusses moment resisting connections used in the design of single storey and multi-storey buildings. It highlights the common types of moment connections used and an overview of the design procedures based on Eurocode 3 (Part 1-8)
This article explores the significance of field testing in soil engineering and highlights some common methods employed in measuring the bearing capacity of soils.
This article describes how to detail a concrete column with respect to geometry, concrete cover, minimum and maximum area of longitudinal reinforcement, size and spacing longitudinal and transverse bars etc.
This article aims to explore how a structural engineer should approach the strengthening of existing structures as well as the major techniques that can be employed in strengthening an existing structure in order to ensure the overall safety and durability.
This article takes a look at what a constitute a claim within the purview of a structural engineer, how they may arise and the steps the structural engineer can take to mitigate them.
This article focuses on the significance of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) in predicting the behavior of complex engineering systems. It delves into common errors in FEA, such as meshing and boundary condition errors, and provides strategies to avoid them. By understanding these errors and implementing preventive measures, engineers can enhance the reliability of FEA models.
The article aims to help a practicing professional navigate the jungle of structural engineering software. It creates a list of 10 software which is meant to help you choose which structural engineering software to invest in within your context and interests.

In buildings with stringent span requirement with vertical element discontinuities, transfer trusses perform better than transfer beam and transfer plates.
There must be a delicate balance between progress and sacrifice. The Implosion of the Titan Submersible is an engineering disaster that should remind engineers never to compromise safety in the quest for innovation.
