This course introduces engineers to the conceptual design process for bridges. It covers two key areas; selecting a structural form to suit the constraints of a site and arranging materials and components to meet the demands of the structure in an elegant and logical way.
Our team is working hard to prepare for a safe return to delivering in-person training at our London HQ from September 2021. However, we will continue to closely monitor the situation. Should it be necessary to make any adjustments, in response to future changes in government guidelines, this will be promptly communicated to delegates. Courses may be rescheduled for online delivery or for a future date.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Identify how the conceptual design of a bridge is informed by physical and environmental site constraints, social, cultural and historical factors
Recognise the value of and use sources of inspiration
Read a bridge design
Explain basic structural systems typically used in bridges
Select appropriate structural forms and materials
Form, develop and communicate a concept
Engineers with little or no experience of conceptual design of bridges, those wishing to explore conceptual design of bridges from an architectural perspective, and experienced engineers wishing to refresh their conceptual design thinking.
Ian Firth is a Past President of the Institution of Structural Engineers. He is a world-leading expert in bridge design and construction. During his career, Ian has been involved with the assessment and strengthening of several famous bridges. He is also responsible for the design of many award winning bridges such as the Swansea Sail Bridge, the Third Way bridge in Taunton and the Destructor Bridge in Bath.

This two day course covers the design and analysis of steel bridges to Eurocodes. It uses worked examples, including steel bridge detailing and fabrication.
A series of two hour interactive webinars taking place over four weeks, supported by individual study in between.
This two day course helps experienced practitioners take their conceptual design skills to the next level.
This two day practical course introduces various computational design methods and systems that can help improve your workflows.
This course gives engineers an enhanced understanding of structural concepts. It covers their applications in design and how they can be used to solve challenging engineering problems
This course is designed to give you knowledge and experience of being in court. You will be cross-examined by a practising Barrister in a protected environment to improve your technique, so can be confident if you are called to give evidence.
This course enables engineers to read, evaluate and negotiate confidently the commercial or legal terms of proposed contracts with clients.
This course introduces EN 1991-1-4, determination of wind velocity and wind actions, and determination of external and internal pressure coefficients on building structures.
This online course offers an introduction to base and loadings Eurocodes and timber design to Eurocode 5.
