By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Civil or structural engineers with an interest in the analysis and design of wind-excited flexible structures, such as chimneys, tall buildings and transmission towers.
This course covers concepts of structural dynamics. It complements the Wind Loading on Structures to EN1991-1-4 course, which covers the basic principles underlying EN 1991-1-4. Participants may find it beneficial to have some familiarity with the fundamental concepts of structural dynamics, Fourier analysis and matrix calculations.
Dr Alessandro Palmeri leads
the Structures and Materials Group at Loughborough University.
His research focuses on applications of structural dynamics, including bridge, earthquake and wind engineering, and probabilistic methods, including reliability- and performance-based design.
Dr Giorgio Barone is a lecturer in structural engineering at Loughborough University.
His research, expertise and interests include structural dynamics, with emphasis on earthquake and wind engineering, as well as lifecycle engineering and maintenance optimisation
of ageing structures.

A series of two-hour interactive sessions taking place over three weeks to help experienced practitioners take their conceptual design skills to the next level. There will be a focus on understanding client needs, generating, and iteratively developing ideas, effective decision making in design, and managing design teams.
This popular course is delivered as a series of interactive online sessions supported by individual study. It provides a theoretical framework for understanding conceptual design in the context of structural engineering.
This course introduces a number of drawing techniques and systems. It will increase your confidence in your sketching abilities.
Provides a theoretical framework for rapid problem solving concept calculations
This popular course includes guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
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.
This practical course introduces engineers to various computational design methods and systems. You will experiment with visual programming (using Grasshopper) and text-based programming (using C#). You will see how automation can improve engineers’ workflows. No previous experience is required.
This interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.
