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.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Review the modelling process

  • Recognise the fundamental behaviour of structural elements

  • Appreciate overall structural equilibrium

  • Describe the behaviour of 3D structures

  • Interpret and explain the behaviour of real structures

  • Reduce complex structures to simpler forms

  • Comprehend the approximate analysis of sub-frames for member sizing

  • Describe the case studies: Swiss Re HQ, London, and Centre Pompidou, Paris

Intended for

  • Recently qualified graduates under training who wish to improve their skills in structural modelling

  • The course will also be of interest to experienced engineers who are returning to the structural design office

  • The course is excellent preparation for The Institution of Structural Engineers Chartered Membership Exam

Entry criteria

  • Attendance at the Understanding structural behaviour course is recommended

Speakers

David Brohn Course tutor

Dr Brohn MBE teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence-based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded The Institution of Structural Engineers President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.

Mark Moppett Course tutor

Mark has 40 years of experience and was Senior Partner and then Managing Director at Booth King from 2006 to 2021. He is now Director and remains a fully practising engineer, committed to the training and development of engineers. Prior to his role at Booth King, Mark was an Associate with international consultancy Arup in London, Hong Kong and latterly Manchester, delivering projects both nationally and internationally.
