This two day course provides engineers with the ability to arrive at an approximate analysis to both create a structure and check computer results.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Apply a qualitative approach to the solution of a range of framed structures
- Apply checking protocols for computer output and establish a reliable interpretation of the results
- Apply the qualitative approach to the approximate analysis of structures as an aid to the creation of the structural model
- Determine appropriate protocols for the development of these skills in the design office
Dr David Brohn teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence-based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded The Institution of Structural Engineers President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.
Recent graduates from BEng or MEng courses. As the course is non-numerical, it will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to structural engineering.
