This two-day course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.

Course date

Tuesday 18 - Wednesday 19 October, 10:00 - 17:30 GMT

Learning outcomes


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

  • Review the modelling process

  • Recognise the fundamental behaviour of structural elements

  • Appreciate overall structural equilibrium

  • Describe the behaviour of 3D structures I nterpret and explain the behaviour of real structures

  • Reduce complex structures to simpler forms

  • Comprehend the approximate analysis of sub-frames for member sizing

  • Describe the case studies: Swiss Re HQ, London, and Centre Pompidou, Paris

Intended for

Recently qualified graduates under training who wish to improve their skills in structural modelling. The course  will also be of interest to experienced engineers who are returning to the structural design office. The course is excellent preparation for The Institution of Structural Engineers Chartered Membership Exam.

Entry criteria

Attendance at the Understanding structural behaviour course is a recommended prerequisite.

Dr David Brohn

Dr David Brohn CEng FIStructE teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence-based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded The Institution of Structural Engineers President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.

Tim Lai

Tim Lai is founder of The Structural Exam and Operations Director for New Paradigms. He teaches budding graduates in the UK and internationally about structural engineering, finance and entrepreneurship. Formerly an Engineering Leadership Award winner with the Royal Academy of Engineering, he worked at Shell as an Offshore Structural Engineer before venturing into entrepreneurship. Tim is also an accredited journalist writing at Forbes.com.
