Training for Chartered and graduate civil and structural engineers focusing on EN 1991 - Eurocode 1

Aim

This course familiarises you with EN 1991 - Eurocode 1: Actions on structures, which primarily relates to buildings. It will include the basis of structural design, densities, self-weight and imposed loads, snow loads, wind loads, thermal actions, actions during execution and accidental actions.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:  

  • Recognise the parts relating to actions in Eurocode EN 1990: Basis of structural design, which is the head material independent code and needs to be used with every Eurocode part
  • Describe the parts and clauses relating to buildings in EN 1991 - Eurocode 1: Actions on structures
  • Explain the UK National Annexes for EN 1991
  • Distinguish the main differences between the EN 1991 and BS 6399 Parts 1, 2 and 3
