This two day course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course to more complex, real structures and the all important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.

Learning outcomes

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

  • Review the modelling process
  • Recognise the fundamental behaviour of structural elements
  • Appreciate overall structural equilibrium
  • Describe the behaviour of 3D structures
  • Interpret and explain the behaviour of real structures
  • Reduce complex structures to simpler forms
  • Comprehend the approximate analysis of sub-frames for member sizing
  • Describe the case studies: Swiss Re HQ, London, and Centre Pompidou, Paris.


Intended for

Recently qualified graduates under training who wish to improve their skills in structural modelling. The course will also be of interest to experienced engineers who are returning to the structural design office. The course is excellent preparation for the Institution's Chartered Membership exam.

Entry criteria

Attendance at the Understanding structural behaviour course is an essential prerequisite. 

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.
