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 course is an essential introduction to the conceptual design process for bridges. It covers two key areas: selecting a structural form to suit the constraints of a site and arranging materials and components to meet the demands of the structure in an elegant and logical way.
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 focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
An introduction to four structural concepts and how their implementation can lead to physical measure for creating desirable distributions of internal forces in structures which can generate more efficient designs.
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 course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This two-day, online course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
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.
