Participation at the Eurocode 5: the essentials of timber design course may be advantageous
Dr Ranasinghe is the Principal Engineer for Structural Timber at BM TRADA and Warringtonfire. Formerly an academic with research and teaching experience both in the UK and abroad, Keerthi has delivered these timber courses at the Institution since 2008. Keerthi is the author of several TRADA publications, including the Span Tables to Eurocode 5, and the Institution’s Manual for the design of timber building structures to Eurocode 5, 2nd edition. Keerthi sits in British and European Standardisation Committees related to timber design and was also a project team member that wrote the connections chapter to the second edition of Eurocode 5.

This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This one-day, online course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2.
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 one-day online course introduces timber as an engineering material, with a focus on its use in historic structures. It covers non-destructive techniques for condition assessment and strategies for the reuse of heritage structures.
This one-day, online course is designed to offer an understanding of structural engineering in relation to buildings to construction industry professionals.
The first webinar of a 6-part series on novel materials focuses on low-tech construction materials solutions such as structural stone, unfired mud bricks and roundwood timber.
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.
