Task Groups

Task Groups (TG) are short-term units targeted for well-defined objectives, typically investigation of technical interest or concern. Within a 2-3 year timeline, these groups produce actual deliverables, which may include a publication, a themed conference session or workshop, a suite of papers in 'Structural Engineering International', or other agreed output.

Task Groups that have successfully completed and delivered their task are listed under Completed Task Groups.
