This two day online course provides engineers with the ability to arrive at an approximate analysis to both create a structure and check computer results.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Apply a qualitative approach to the solution of a range of framed structures
  • Apply checking protocols for computer output and establish a reliable interpretation of the results
  • Apply the qualitative approach to the approximate analysis of structures as an aid to the creation of the structural model
  • Determine appropriate protocols for the development of these skills in the design office

Intended for

Recent graduates from BEng or MEng courses. As the course is non-numerical, it will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to structural engineering. 
 

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.

This course will be delivered virtually and divided into manageable sessions. 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

Dr David Brohn

David teaches structural engineering in the UK and internationally. David pioneered the ‘Brohn Test’ in the early 1970s, leading the way in evidence-based tracking of levels of understanding structural behaviour amongst graduates. He was awarded the Institution's President’s Award in recognition of his visionary approach to the education of students and graduates.

Tim Lai

Tim teaches budding graduates both in the UK and internationally about structural engineering, finance and entrepreneurship through his training company 'The Structural Exam'. Formerly an Engineering Leadership Award winner with the Royal Academy of Engineering, he then worked at Shell as an Offshore Structural Engineer before venturing into entrepreneurship.
