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.
