Analysing structures without recourse to numbers is vital for engineers to have a basic appreciation of structural behaviour, and to help identify errors in computer input from the output. Dr David Brohn (New Paradigm Solutions and author of Understanding Structural Analysis) has been an important figure in this field since the late 70s and his important benchmark tests of structural understanding. As part of an e-Training course for the Institution of Structural Engineers, Dr Brohn has developed a video series to teach qualitative analysis. The first three of these are freely available and are very useful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUJXu7APzCY
