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.

Tony is a Structural Engineer with over 30 years of experience in the design, research and investigation of concrete structures. He provides guidance on all aspects of structural concrete design, including performance in fire. Tony has been involved with the production of numerous industry guides and with the development of concrete structural codes for over 20 years. He is currently the UK Head of Delegation on the European committee responsible for Eurocode 2, Design of Concrete Structures.
Sebastian is a Structural Engineer based in Arup’s specialist Technology Analytics and Research Team in London. He has worked on various concrete, steel, masonry and timber existing buildings and structures across the world, involving condition surveys, load path analysis and structural and seismic retrofit.

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 focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This two-day 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 computational output and member sizing.
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 offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
Get practical insights and best practices on u ndertaking structural assessments to support the Safety Case Report required by the Building Safety Act.
This two-day, in-person course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
