Examining historical building modelling methods and how to utilise modern computer-aided analysis to assess the structural behaviour of existing concrete buildings.

Understanding how the original designer modelled an existing building can be helpful in grasping the assumed and, therefore, designed for behaviour of the building.

In this webinar, expert speakers provide an update on the second generation of Eurocode 2 to frame the conversation, before delving into historical modelling methods, such as tabular techniques, yield line analysis, moment redistribution and stability, and providing invaluable insights into assessing the assumed behaviour of structures.

The focus will then shift towards modern tools to analyse concrete buildings, with case studies showcasing best practices to appropriately use them.

Reasons to attend

  • Discover why historic methods may differ from standard modern analysis practice

  • Understand historic methods of concrete analysis

  • Learn how to best approach the analysis of historic structures, making use of both modern and historic methods

Intended for

  • Engineers assessing the safety of existing structures concrete structures built between 1950 and 1985

  • Designer planning the modification, partial demolition or extension of existing concrete structures

  • Professionals with an interest in historic design practice
