By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Describe the layout and structure of a robust building and explain what makes a building vulnerable
Summarise which legislation is relevant to disproportionate collapse and identify key clauses
Classify buildings into their types, with respect to building use and size
Outline different approaches for achieving robustness
Determine a strategy for robustness compliance for buildings of different material types, use and size
Have an appreciation of fire protection of different building materials and how fire safety plays a role in all building design
Newly chartered or almost chartered engineers who are independently doing the outline, scheme and detailed design of buildings.
Gavin Knowles is a lecturer at the University of Bath and prior to this has worked in practice as a Chartered structural engineer. His previous projects including many education and office buildings, along with conservation and refurbishment projects, interweaved with diverse structures, such as rammed chalk-walled houses, recycled material stages at WOMAD Festival and the odd sculpture. He now teaches Structural Design, Conservation and leads on student design projects.
