Join industry leaders and explore the factors driving change in structural engineering: society and technology; process and materials; regulatory and legislative. This e-conference will help you keep your business creative, profitable, and sustainable in a rapidly changing world.
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 course will equip attendees with practical knowledge about structural design with bamboo stems (culms). The course considers aspects of concept design, detailed design and durability by design.
This one-day, online course is designed to offer an understanding of structural engineering in relation to buildings to construction industry professionals.
This course supports the practising designer with the transition to Eurocode-based design for composite building structures. It will enable you to understand the essential requirements of this code for your structural design, how the code operates and how it can support you.
Bringing together practitioners, academics and students in a showcase of outstanding structural engineering research.
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 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.
