Nada Elkady and colleagues describe their research-based work to design a steel transfer truss resistant to progressive collapse. The project won the Institution’s Research into Practice case study competition in 2022.
Umut Akguzel describes his research into seismic retrofitting of reinforced concrete structures using advanced composites, which won the Institution's inaugural Research into Practice essay competition in 2019.
Smail Kechidi describes his research into cold-formed steel-framed shear walls sheathed in timber, which won the Institution’s Research into Practice essay competition in 2021.
This course equips practising engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
