This popular one-day, online course offers guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
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 two-day, online course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This one-day, online course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joints to EN 1993-1-8.
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 equips practising engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
