The aim of this course is to help attendees use structural aluminium. It introduces basic considerations as well as giving guidance on using Eurocode 9, including design examples.

Learning outcomes

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

  • List the considerations necessary when deciding to design in structural aluminium rather than in steel
  • Determine how to select the most appropriate aluminium alloys for a structural application
  • Examine the pros and cons of different material forms and jointing methods
  • Perform limit state calculations in accordance with the Eurocode
  • Prepare rules for execution (fabrication and erection)

Intended for

The course is primarily intended for structural engineers who will use Eurocode 9 for the design of buildings, civil engineering and structural works including bridges. The basic principles and content will also be useful for other engineers who will use aluminium in other applications.

Entry criteria 

Some prior experience of design of steel or aluminium structures would be helpful.
