An introduction to structural concepts and how their implementation can lead to physical measure for creating desirable distributions of internal forces in structures which can assist in the process of designing against deflection.

This course contributes to IPD objective 2.1

Learning outcomes

  • Identify and analyse four key structural concepts and their implementation

  • Recognise intuitive ways to interpret structural behaviour

  • Appreciate innovate engineering solutions for reducing deflections

  • Identify physical measures embedded in existing structures which effectively reduce deflections 

  • Recognise the interaction between structural concepts and design practice

 

Intended for

Graduate engineers approaching chartership. The course is also relevant for experienced engineers who wish to enhance their holistic comprehension of structural design against deflection. 

Entry criteria

Participants are encouraged to read as much as possible at www.structuralconcepts.org before attending the course.

Speaker

Dr Tianjian Ji

Course tutor

Dr Tianjian Ji is a Reader in Structural Engineering at the University of Manchester. He developed "seeing and touching structural concepts" for gaining an intuitive understanding by using simple physical models and appropriate practical examples.  He is the author of two books; "Understanding and Using Structural Concepts" and "Structural Design Against Deflection".
