Designing with Glass as a Structural Material

Aim


This half-day workshop focuses on the design and detailing of structural glass elements.


 

Learning outcomes


By the end of this course, you should be able to:

 

  • Recognise the performance of glass as a structural material
  • Apply current methodology of designing structural glass elements that is based on limit state theory
  • Design simple structural elements in glass
  • Specify structural glass elements    
  • Inspect and maintain structural glass elements


 

Tutor


Chris O’Regan MIStructE is a Principal Structural Engineer at AECOM Ltd in their London office. He has worked within the field of structural engineering for over 30 years and during his formative years as a Graduate Structural Engineer he was trained and mentored at Dewhurst MacFarlane & Partners. It is there he first came into contact with designing structural glass elements and his interest in the material has not waned since.

Until May of 2014 he worked within the Technical and Engineering department of the Institution of Structural Engineers as a Technical Author. In January 2012, he was tasked with revising the now 18-year-old publication Structural Use of Glass in Buildings, bringing it in line with current methods of design, construction and maintenance of glass structures.

 

Intended for


Experienced structural engineers who are well-versed in the design of more traditional materials such as steel, concrete and timber using current codes of practice.

 

Entry criteria


Practicing structural engineers with at least one year's postgraduate experience and/or members of the postgraduate studies academic community.
