Design of efficient steel trusses to resist progressive collapse
The progressive collapse framework provides a method that can be used to design progressive collapse resistant structures while ensuring optimum efficiency and minimal carbon expenditure.
This two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This course presents practical guidance on key aspects of preliminary scheme development and detailed scheme design in structural steelwork.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective, while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This two-day 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 computational output and member sizing.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
