This half day online course covers the methods by which the lateral stability of a building structure is achieved.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Describe the methods of achieving lateral stability in buildings
  • Recognise how robustness impacts on lateral stability
  • Identify second order effects on building structure frames
  • Illustrate development and projection of load paths in frames
  • ​Identify and exploit vertical and horizontal stability systems


Intended for

Graduate structural engineers who are expected to develop their understanding of the stability of complex, real world building structures.

Entry criteria

Attendees must be practising structural engineers who are familiar with building structures and have a minimum of one year’s experience.

Online delivery

Our Training and Events Team has been working hard to ensure that the quality of our training does not differ despite no longer being in the classroom. We understand the importance of interacting with tutors and engaging with other delegates, and this has been prioritised when transferring our courses onto an online platform.  

The content remains the same as the in house version of the course and the group size is still limited to allow the same level of interaction to take place between delegates and the tutor(s). 

Tutor

Chris O’Regan

Chris O’Regan is a principal structural engineer at AECOM Ltd., London. As a graduate structural engineer he was trained at Dewhurst MacFarlane & Partners, where he first started designing structural glass elements. In 2012, he revised the Institution’s Structural Use of Glass in Buildings, bringing it in line with current methods of design, construction and maintenance of glass structures.
