This report covers:
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 practical course will help structural engineers to confidently approach a refurbishment or reuse project. Looking at the initial steps needed to understand an existing structure, how to apply basic conservation principles and the design implications and considerations.
This interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.
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.
This course introduces key concepts in vibration serviceability of building floors. Techniques for analysis, design and mitigation for satisfactory vibration performance are outlined, as well as their potential impact on sustainability of floor construction.
This course equips practicing 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.
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.
Develop powerful tools for leading and influencing the people you work with. This practical course, delivered as 5 three-hour workshops across 10 weeks, aims to develop awareness about yourself and your impact on others, helping you to share your expertise and influence the direction of a project.
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.
This one-day, online course delivers key advice and guidance on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This EEFIT lecture explores the pivotal role of Earthquake Loss Models in disaster risk management, focusing the validation and calibration processes using data from past events and field missions.
This highly practical, half-day, online workshop teaches the skills SME practice owners and directors need in order to plan the medium and long term growth of their SMEs.
