This course guides you to successful use of aluminium with some simple facts allied to detailed guidance in using Eurocode 9.

Aim

The course guides you to successful use of aluminium with some simple basic facts allied to detailed guidance in using Eurocode 9.

 
Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:
 
•    List the considerations necessary when deciding to use aluminium or steel
•    Determine how to select the best aluminium alloys for an application
•    Examine the pros and cons of different material forms and jointing methods
•    Apply the skills required to perform limit state calculations in accordance with the code
•    Prepare rules for execution (fabrication and erection)
 
Tutor
 
Phil Tindall is a chartered civil engineer with over 40 years’ professional experience in structural design and engineering. Phil specialises in the design of steel and aluminium bridges and other structural items fabricated from aluminium alloys.

He has been a member of the BSI committee responsible for BS 8118 and for UK inputs to Eurocode 9 for almost 30 years, and is currently team leader for the project team preparing an Annex to Eurocode 9 to cover bridges and long span structures.


Intended for

Structural engineers who will use Eurocode 9. The basic principles and content will also be useful for structural and mechanical engineers who will use aluminium in other applications.


Entry criteria

Some prior experience of design of steel or aluminium structures using British or European design codes will be necessary to fully appreciate all aspects of the design rules.
