The influence of the digital world is increasing its impact on those involved with the built environment, whilst our capability to exploit data to inform designs and push the boundaries of what is possible is at the heart of structural engineering.
As our ability to monitor, record, extract and extrapolate information on the performance of our structures continues to improve there is a growing need to better understand how best to use the information.
The use of big data and AI tools are emerging challenges for the industry. It is the ability to understand and manipulate information with computational tools which may transform the role of structural engineers.
An increasingly online world requires robust digital security to mitigate potential infiltration of digital systems and the harm that could be caused to our infrastructure, whether it be financial damage, intellectual property infringement, criminal activity or terrorism.

Providing comprehensive guidance on: design (including parametric design), modelling (and its problems), analysis, optimisation, AI and machine learning, and the future of engineering software.
The executive summary from a 2020 Research Award winning project.
Use this tool to help you determine the structural information requirements and level of detail required for your projects.
Peter Debney explores Artificial Intelligence and how it can help structural engineers.
This two-day, online course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.
This popular one-day, online course offers guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This one-day, online course examines changes between BS 5950 and Eurocode 3. The emphasis is on buildings and the provision of general rules for buildings of EN 1993-1-1 and design of joints to EN 1993-1-8.
Learn how to sketch on a tablet to create and edit work within the digital workflow in this interactive course taking place as a series of two-hour sessions over three weeks. This course aims to help attendees in the use of electronic sketching as an integral part of their design thinking, enabling sketch practice across interoperable platforms.
This lecture focused on how to effectively model complex structures.
Our expert panel from London Structures Lab and BKWai explained what asset monitoring sensors are available at the moment, how the data needs to be processed to identify residual trends and what opportunities are available to engineers in the future. Through current research and real-time case studies, they also discussed the range of sensing systems available and the circumstances that they can be utilised.
This webinar introduces optimisation as a general theory and discusses how viewing design and the design process as an optimisation problem can lead to better engineering and streamlined practice.

Alastair Low-Macrae argues that blockchain technology may hold the key to some of the issues around trust and transparency that the industry is currently grappling with, particularly in the context of BIM.
fibUK brings together experts to explore bringing design to reality, using case studies of modular bridge substructures and reinforced concrete structures.
