This course introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures. It outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.

Course date

Tuesday 20 September, 10:00 - 17:30 GMT

Learning outcomes:

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

  •  Describe the basic principles of EN 1991-1-4
  • Determine site-specific wind data for a site in the UK
  • Determine the design wind loads on a typical building structure and its cladding

Intended for:

Recently graduated civil and structural engineers who wish to study wind effects on structures in greater detail.

Entry criteria

Participants should have a first degree in civil or structural engineering.
