Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

The research carried out in the past at the University of Strathclyde into Thin-Walled Structures is briefly reviewed in this paper. Various areas of thin-walled structures are considered, including cold-formed steel structures, plates and shells, storage and pressure vessels, and piping. The research is discussed largely with reference to the PhD projects successfully completed in the University, and particularly in the Mechanical Engineering Department, but involvement in design codes, design courses, industrial research and development and collaboration with other organisations is also briefly outlined. Paper presented at the 11th Symposium on the Stability of Structures, Zakopane, Poland, September 2006.
