This online course focuses on the use of structural aluminium, introducing basic considerations and giving guidance on using Eurocode 9. It includes design examples.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • List the considerations necessary when deciding to use aluminium or steel

  • Determine how to select the best aluminium alloys for an application

  • Examine the pros and cons of different material forms and jointing methods

  • Apply the skills required to perform limit state calculations in accordance with the code

  • Prepare rules for execution (fabrication and erection)

Intended for

Structural engineers who will use Eurocode 9. The basic principles and content will also be useful for structural and mechanical engineers who will use aluminium in other applications.

Entry criteria

Some prior experience of design of steel or aluminium structures using British or European design codes will be necessary to fully appreciate all aspects of the design rules.
