Abstract

Editorial The 9th European Conference on Steel and Composite Structures, 1–3 September 2021 can be used to make a contribution as the strong compo- nents in the earthquake-resistant design of multi-storey framed buildings. Plastic energy dissipation can then be concentrated on other, low-strength ductile members; this has not been possible with the traditional range of struc- tural steels. Three-dimensional printing is developing at a rapid pace, and new techniques such as Wire-and-Arc Ad- ditive Manufacturing, is particularly suited to robotic steel fabrication. It allows designers to explore a field of irre- gular and individually optimised structural forms without the constraints of repetition which have been necessary for economical fabrication and construction. Jörg Lange’s ar- ticle links this technique with topology optimisation and Ian Burgess Buick Davison numerical analysis to show how the mass of connecting elements can be minimised. The potential to extend this The University of Sheffield Department of Civil & Struc- approach is obvious. Finally, with the general imperative tural Engineering is delighted to be organising the 9th in to reduce energy consumption and Carbon emissions the series of Eurosteel conferences. We had hoped to be worldwide, the thrust to design structures using cold- welcoming international delegates in September 2020 but formed framing systems in place of traditional hot-rolled unfortunately, in common with many major conferences steel is becoming irresistible.
