By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Recognise the characteristics of fires in buildings and understand the effect on structural materials
Understand the principles of relevant UK fire safety legislation (Building Regulations, Building Safety Act, Fire Safety Act) and the responsibilities of structural engineers
Classify potential hazards
Appreciate various fire modelling techniques
Undertake basic risk analysis for structures against fire
Senior engineer/Team leader/Manager
Participants will be supplied with on-demand Safety Cases and relevant Building Safety Act training, that is recommended viewing prior to attending.
Ian Burgess and Roger Plank started their research on structural fire engineering in 1985 at the University of Sheffield, simulating the behaviour of isolated steel elements in furnace tests. Their numerical approaches developed rapidly and they played a key role in the Cardington fire test programme, leading to the development of the award-winning software Vulcan. This has been used extensively on real design projects for modelling the 3-dimensional behaviour of steel-framed, composite and concrete structures in fire, including tensile membrane action. They have also studied the robustness of frames, conducting unique high-temperature experimental work at Sheffield on connection component behaviour and on model-scale testing of concrete slabs.
Their research was recognised through a major award from the ASCE, and their Vulcan software won two national prizes in 2005 from the British Computer Society. Their research group generated 35 PhD graduates, and the research work is now being taken further by their successors at the University of Sheffield.

This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
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 advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This half-day in-person course provides guidance to early-career structural engineers to develop a better understanding of geotechnical engineering and use that knowledge to enhance and promote sustainable design.
This course establishes good practice in the design of reinforced concrete structures. Through practical exercises, it will cover concept, design, flat slabs and finite element analysis.
This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations. It is tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
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 one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
