By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Identify how the conceptual design of a bridge is informed by physical and environmental site constraints, social, cultural, and historical factors
Recognise the value of and use sources of inspiration
Read a bridge design
Explain basic structural systems typically used in bridges
Select appropriate structural forms and materials
Form, develop and communicate a concept
Engineers with little or no experience of conceptual design of bridges, those wishing to explore conceptual design of bridges from an architectural perspective, and experienced engineers wishing to refresh their conceptual design thinking.
Ian Firth is a Past President of the Institution of Structural Engineers. He is a world-leading expert in bridge design and construction. During his career, Ian has been involved with the assessment and strengthening of several famous bridges. He is also responsible for the design of many award-winning bridges such as the Swansea Sail Bridge, the Third Way bridge in Taunton and the Destructor Bridge in Bath.

This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This one-day, online course is designed to offer an understanding of structural engineering in relation to buildings to construction industry professionals.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computer results.
This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
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 covers the theoretical background, technical aspects and Eurocode provisions for the analysis and design of flexible structures exposed to wind loads.
This two-day, online 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.
