This two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Apply a qualitative approach to the solution of a range of framed structures
  • Apply checking protocols for computer output and establish a reliable interpretation of the results
  • Apply the qualitative approach to the approximate analysis of structures as an aid to the creation of the structural model
  • Determine appropriate protocols for the development of these skills in the design office

Intended for

Recent graduates from BEng or MEng courses. As the course is non-numerical, it will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to structural engineering.

Entry criteria

None.

Speakers

Dr David Brohn CEng FIStructE
