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.
This course provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context of structural engineering.
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 half day online course will equip self-employed engineers with an understanding of the commercial value of their Intellectual Property. With practical training on how you can protect your design copyright, business name, confidentiality and inventions.
This two day course teaches engineers communication skills, building on specific engineering scenarios and examples.
This online course demonstrates the similarities between stadium engineering and other types of design. It stresses the importance of the Class 3 structure review regulations and the critical compliance with stadium design guides.
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.
This two day online course shows engineers how to arrive at an qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
