A breakfast briefing, sponsored by Getzner, focusing on elastic building isolation and its application for achieving dynamic optimisation and structural integrity.
This half day course focuses on the design and detailing of structural glass elements.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
