CPD Seminar: Concrete Analysis Toolkit

Following on from our successful seminar on Specifying Concrete in 2017, this seminar will look at various tools and techniques for analysis of concrete structures.

Taking Section 5 of Eurocode 2 Part 1-1 “Structural Analysis” as the basis of the seminar,  will consider a range of options for analysing concrete structures prior to design, including FEA, struct and tie method, yield line analysis, second order effects and serviceability.

14.30:  Registration
15.00:  Linear elastic analysis with limited redistribution
15.30:  Finite element analysis
16.00:  Strut and Tie Method

17.00:  Yield line analysis
17.30:  Second Order Effects

             -   Nominal curvature
             -   Nominal stiffness methods

18.00:  Serviceability analysis

             - Calculation of deflection/vibration response
             - Cracked/uncracked sections
             - Suitable E values

18.30: Prestress Analysis


Jenny Burridge MA CEng MICE MIStructE   
Jenny is Head of Structural Engineering at the Concrete Centre, part of Mineral Products Association. She is a chartered civil and structural engineer with over 30 years’ experience in the Construction Industry. She currently leads a team of structural engineers advising engineers, architects and contractors on the uses of concrete both technically and practically. 

Key areas of expertise include the design of reinforced concrete buildings, particularly hospitals, arts centres, educational facilities, hotels and research facilities.  She also has particular interest in sustainable development of the built environment and the performance of concrete structures in fire.

She is a past chairman of the Thames Valley Regional Group of The Institution of Structural Engineers and, after being a marking examiner for the CM Exam for many years, now sits on the Exams Panel.
