This half-day online course introduces simple structural concepts that will enable structural engineers to design more effective, efficient and elegant structures.

Through the introduction of simple physical models and practical examples, you will gain a greater understanding of structural behaviour and the distribution of internal forces in structures. As a result, you will be able to identify how the design of simple structures can be improved and be equipped to provide solutions to structural problems.

Structural concepts covered

  • More direct internal force paths

  • More uniform distribution of internal forces

  • Smaller internal forces

  • Converting more bending moments to axial forces

Learning outcomes

  • Develop an intuitive understanding of four structural concepts

  • Translate your understanding of simple structural concepts into efficient design

  • Appreciate innovative engineering solutions for reducing deflections

  • Identify the routes and measures in existing structures, which efficiently reduce deflections

 Intended for

  • Although open to all, this course is particularly suited to graduate structural engineers and those preparing to take the IStructE’s Chartership Membership exam.
