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)
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.
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.
John has many years of professional and academic experience in structural design and construction. He is a Professor and was Head of the Civil Engineering Departments at Brunel University and Northumbria University. He was and is a member of the BSI committee responsible for BS 8118 and for UK inputs to Eurocode 9, including preparation for the new updated Eurocode 9.

This course offers an introduction to base and loadings Eurocodes and timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course supports the practising designer with the transition to Eurocode-based design for composite building structures.
This course provides guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements.
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 course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. Tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
This course provides participants with detailed knowledge of masonry design to Eurocode 6, standards and the National Annexes for Eurocodes.
This course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joint to EN 1993-1-8.
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 introduces EN 1991-1-4, determination of wind velocity and wind actions, and determination of external and internal pressure coefficients on building structures.
