The aim of this course is to provide participants with detailed knowledge of masonry design to Eurocode 6. It will also cover the supporting CEN standards (explaining various parts and coverage) and the National Annexes (the necessary information to make Eurocode 6 useable in the UK).
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Explain design using masonry to the Eurocode
- Design for vertical load
- Design for lateral load
- Identify and locate relevant information to support their future designs
