This course introduces participants to the design of concrete structures to Eurocode 2, including the basics (materials, cover, fire), flexure, shear, deflection and column design.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Describe Eurocode 2
- Design procedures for beams, slabs and columns
- Determine cover for a typical element
- Design elements for bending, deflection, shear and axial loads
Paul Gregory is a structural engineer for The Concrete Centre. He works within the Centre’s Structural Engineering Department providing technical advice and support to designers. Paul has been a member of The Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers for over forty years, and has experience in building structures with a number of consulting engineers. In addition to his industrial experience, Paul was a structural design lecturer for seventeen years at the University of Bradford, teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Practising structural engineers who are looking to start designing to Eurocode 2.
A basic understanding of the Eurocode system is assumed, together with a knowledge of the design of concrete.
