This two day course covers the design and analysis of steel bridges to Eurocodes with worked examples, including steel bridge detailing and fabrication.
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
- Select a suitable type of steel bridge
- Apply the bridge loading
- Carry out bridge idealisation and analysis
- Design key structural elements of steel bridges
- Prepare the steel bridge detailing and fabrication
Dr Ben Lau is an Associate Engineer at SNC-Lavalin Atkins and Associate Professor (Industry Base) within the College of Engineering at Swansea University. He has extensive design experience in bridge engineering for large scale national and international projects, particularly in designing steel bridges.
Chris Hendy is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Head of Bridge Design and Technology in SNC-Lavalin Atkins, providing technical leadership to more than 700 bridge engineers worldwide. He is a recognised international expert on the background and use of Eurocodes 2, 3 and 4.
Those relatively new to bridge engineering, whether experienced structural engineers wanting to switch discipline, early career bridge engineers, or those just wanting to refresh their knowledge of bridge design.
Some design experience in steel structures to Eurocodes.
