This compendium is made up of a selection of the best and most representative papers from a group of Elsevier's structural engineering journals. Selections were made by the journal's editorial teams.

The papers appeared in the following journals during 2000:

Journal of Constructional Steel Research P.J. Dowling, J.E. Harding, R. Bjorhovde

Thin Walled Structures J. Loughlan, K.P. Chong

Engineering Structures P.L. Gould

Computers and Structures K.J. Bathe, B.H.V. Topping

Construction and Building Materials M.C. Forde

Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Areodynamics N.P. Jones

Marine Structures P.A. Frieze, A. Mansour, T. Yao

Each paper appears in the same format as it was published in the journal; citations should be made using the original journal publication details.

It is intended that this compendium will be the first in a series of such collections. A compendium has also been published in the area of geotechnical engineering.


For researchers, students and practitioners.
