By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Apply performance criteria to construction techniques and structural form considering the intended use
Design appropriate waterproofing to achieve the desired environment
Propose structural form and sequence to match the geotechnical conditions
Plan construction methodology and sequence, including estimating schedule and costs
Assess the logistics and space requirements of different equipment considering the construction methodology and ground conditions
Design deep basements taking into account of all the above
Gain awareness of structural options
Civil or structural engineers (from contractors to consultants) with some understanding of the design process, or those who wish to develop their design knowledge and experience, in both the technical and practical aspects of deep basement design and construction.
Graduate civil and structural engineers, practising design and construction engineers, and other professionals interested in the design and construction of deep basements.
Christina Mavrommati has over 20 years’ experience in the geotechnical design of large-scale civil engineering works in Greece and the UK including metro stations, bridges and earthworks.
Sivilay Sayavong has over 15 years’ experience in the construction industry and brings with her a wealth of geotechnical design experience and technical problem solving; particularly in heavy foundation engineering including piles and diaphragm walls.
This course gives guidance on the key considerations when planning the construction of deep basements. It covers using both embedded wall bottom-up and top-down construction in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7.
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.
This two-day, online course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This one-day, online course helps you improve the quality of your written reports and reduce the time you spend writing. It covers how to adapt your writing style for different documents and audiences. You will also learn some grammar best practice to help you write clearly and concisely.
This half-day, online course will equip self-employed engineers with an understanding of the commercial value of their Intellectual Property. The course contains practical advice on how you can protect your design copyright, business name, confidentiality, and inventions.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
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.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, 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.
