Abstract

Editorial Xii Conference on Steel and Composite Construction During the conference, the “Professor Eduardo de Arantes e Oliveira Award” honoured the best contribu- tions. The Arantes Award was initiated by Ernst & Sohn’s journal Steel Construction, the official journal of ECCS since 2010. Six contributions were nominated and the pa- per “Flange-induced buckling of high-strength steel gird- ers” by Sérgio Nascimento, André Biscaya and José Oliveira Pedro was the winner. This contribution is pub- lished in an augmented form in this issue of Steel Con- struction.
