Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures


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.

Learning outcomes

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
