By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Differentiate between reliability, risk and resilience when quantifying structural performance
Appreciate the role of robustness and resilience in the design of structures
Understand the role of aleatory and epistemic uncertainties in the design of structures
Decide which design situations are best suited for the adoption of performance-based approaches, and justify their use in practice
Break down the application of performance-based design into sequential stages; from assessing the relevant hazards to estimating the resulting losses
Recommend a range of structural and non-structural solutions to enhance resilience and robustness

This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
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 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 course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
This course equips practicing engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
This course introduces key concepts in vibration serviceability of building floors. Techniques for analysis, design and mitigation for satisfactory vibration performance are outlined, as well as their potential impact on sustainability of floor construction.
This two-day, in-person course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This highly practical, half-day, online workshop teaches the skills SME practice owners and directors need in order to plan the medium and long term growth of their SMEs.
