Identify and analyse four key structural concepts and their implementation
Recognise intuitive ways to interpret structural behaviour
Appreciate innovate engineering solutions for reducing deflections
Identify physical measures embedded in existing structures which effectively reduce deflections
Recognise the interaction between structural concepts and design practice
Graduate engineers approaching chartership. The course is also relevant for experienced engineers who wish to enhance their holistic comprehension of structural design against deflection.
Dr Tianjian Ji is a Reader in Structural Engineering at the University of Manchester. He developed "seeing and touching structural concepts" for gaining an intuitive understanding by using simple physical models and appropriate practical examples. He is the author of two books; "Understanding and Using Structural Concepts" and "Structural Design Against Deflection".

This one-day, online course is designed to offer an understanding of structural engineering in relation to buildings to construction industry professionals.
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 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 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 computer results.
This course covers the theoretical background, technical aspects and Eurocode provisions for the analysis and design of flexible structures exposed to wind loads.
The current demand for many floors is open plan, slender and lightweight. As such, vibration and not strength govern their design. This course will equip engineers to appreciate state-of-the-art vibration serviceability design and assessment for low-frequency, high-frequency floors, cross-laminated timber and other lightweight floors and best practice in testing and mitigation.
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.
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.
